New Garda operational changes in Athlone receive strong rebuke from O’Rourke

Thu, Nov 30, 2023

Changes to the An Garda Siochana operational structure in Athlone, now implemented, have received a strong rebuke from local councillor, Aengus O’Rourke.

Under the new operational structure, there is no longer an Athlone Garda barracks based superintendent with responsibility for policing within the town, the current superintendent in residence, Michelle Baker, moving to a new policing role where she will have responsibility for the ‘performance assurance functional area’ in the Meath/Westmeath Division.

Navan based, Chief Superintendent John Dollard will now have sole responsibility for the policing model within the Meath-Westmeath Division.
