    Default Templemore to close for 2 years

    In a recession, crime goes up. With people out of jobs, some turn to crime, so FF respond by lowering the number of Guards trained every year.

    Are these people completely dumb?

    Some of the better sergeants & inspectors in the country are in Templemore

    and large numbers of training officers redeployed to routine policing duties
    This means they'll hit the streets again

    Default Potential solution to budget crisis

    How to deal with excess Civil/Public servants in the system(assuming there are many/any!!)

    1) Ones with third level qualifications should become teachers etc.

    2) All the others could be trained up to be gardai etc.

    Every body likes to hit out at the Gardai in times of strife, why should the government be any different.

    Is this part punishment for marching and defying the powers that be?

    This ban on recruitment and closing of templemore will come back to haunt this government.

    By the time they have all the instructors etc transferred and relocated, with all the transfer expenses paid, and a maintenance firm brought in it will have cost them more than keeping it open.

    Most of these instructors have families living in Templemore and children going to school there. Have they taken that into consideration?.

    What about all those Garda houses that were provided for the instructors? do they still own them?
    I do not think there will be too many FF votes in that part of Tipperary at the next election....shortly

    Thumbs down

    Truly Dumb decision making when what we are heading into will for certain lead to an increase in violent crime.

    Fine Gael have just been handed a sure fire vote winner on a platter....

    We need more Irishmen and women joing An Garda Síochána
