Huge Attendance At Thurles Garda Division Open Day

Over 600 post primary school students attended at Thurles Garda station last Wednesday for the Thurles Garda Division’s ‘Open Day for Secondary School.’

This event followed on from the extremely successful Thurles Garda Public Open Day held last September (2015).

The event organised by serving Thurles Garda Officer Annette Connolly and supported by Templemore Garda College; Officers and Management serving the Thurles Garda Division, saw officers give up one days leave to return to their workplace to inform, educate and provide a fun day for all the visiting students.

Education on ‘Drugs’; overall ‘Crime Prevention’; ‘Garda Training’; ‘Thurles Text Alert’; ‘Know Your Patch’; ‘AFIS’ (Fingerprinting), and ‘Evidezer’ (Breath Analysis); ‘Communications’ etc were the order of the day; together with information on the dangers of ‘Speed’; the use of ‘Speed Cameras’ (Garda Traffic Unit); ‘Powers of Arrest and Detention’; Equipment used by the Regional Garda Armed Response Unit and the Public Order Unit.

A huge attraction were Officers, with their horses, from the Garda Mounted Unit, together with Officers and their dogs from the Drugs Unit and Public Order Unit.

Irish TV and Radio Tipp FM were also in attendance, so expect to see and hear more on this most positive and informative of events in the weeks ahead.

Congrats to all who took part – Truly this was community education at its very best.
