Online Public Meetings in June

The South West Inner City LOCAL POLICING FORUM (LPF) will meet on Zoom on 17 June 2021 – our first meeting since Covid-19 arrived in March 2020.  An invitation to attend is here:  Please click ‘Register’ to request the meeting link.

Information on the LPF and on what we do is provided on the registration page.  Our first aim is to bring people together to discuss and promote community safety.  Bodies linked to the Forum – including An Garda Síochána and Dublin City Council – will respond to questions and work together to address problems raised.
We are looking forward to this our first online meeting.  We hope the meeting will be of practical value to participants and will help us work together to build a safer community.  Anyone living, working or otherwise connected to the South West Inner City area will be very welcome at the meeting.

We understand that lockdowns are difficult for most people, especially
so for the more vulnerable members of society. Community Call is a
collaboration between local authorities, An Garda Siochána and local
community groups, to help elderly or vulnerable members of the
community during the Covid pandemic.
Community Call helplines can provide:
· Delivery of food, medication, fuel or other household items
· Someone to talk to or keep in touch with
· Other practical supports, signposts and referral to reliable information
and services

With public meetings still unable to take place during the extended Covid restrictions, Local Policing Forums are thinking of new ways to connect with members of the public. We still hold regular management committee meetings online, and have tried to ensure that committee memberships reflect the whole area and that community leaders are able to bring to the Forum any community safety issues that may be causing concern. We have also reached out to our mailing lists to ask people to get in touch if they wish us to highlight anything to An Gárda Siochána, or to Dublin City Council.

Another recent development is that since January 2021, all of the four Local Policing Forums are now fully represented on the Dublin South Central Joint Policing Committee, and input to the JPC report each quarter. This means that persistent community safety issues, that cannot be solved locally, can now be highlighted at a higher level.
