With restrictions on public gatherings continuing due to high Covid numbers, the Forums are all planning to hold at least some of their 2022 public meetings online.
Anyone living, working or otherwise connected to the area served by Kevin Street Garda station(SWIC LPF meetings); Kilmainham station(Canals LPF meetings), or Crumlin / Sundrive stations(Dublin 12 LPF meetings) will be very welcome to attend.
During the live online session, bodies linked to the Forum – including An Garda Síochána and Dublin City Council – will respond to questions and work together to address problems raised.
Minutes and any other documentation arising from these meetings will be posted here in due course.
South West Inner City Local Policing Forum held a virtual public meeting on 17th June 2021. The minutes of this meeting, as well as an update from the Chair on follow-ups to the issues raised, can be found here:
In February 2021, South West Inner City Local Policing Forum shared some updates and contact information for Kevin Street and Kilmainham Community Gárdai. The information leaflet can be downloaded here:

|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

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
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.
