YESTERDAY, GARDA COMMISSIONER Martin Callinan attempted to reassure the public about garda cutbacks, saying that the closure of 100 stations by the end of the year would not affect the standard of policing.

Callinan said the reduction in the number of stations did not represent a diminuation in the force and stressed that gardaí would not lose contact with the community.

However the cuts have been criticised, particularly by groups like Age Action Ireland, following a spate of aggravated burglaries in the homes of older people in recent months.

So how do you feel about it? Are you worried about the closure of garda stations?

Poll Results:

Somewhat (1127)
Yes (1125)
No (697)
I'm not sure (396)
