The government’s cost savings plan for the gardaí appears to be working better than expected, as the reduction in funding and resources has brought with it a reduction in the amount of criminals currently operating in Ireland.
Although many feared that the cuts would severely impact the service that the gardaí could provide, it appears now that criminals have taken the initiative and began killing each other in broad daylight, reducing the overall numbers of them in Ireland.
They can do this effectively now as they no longer have to worry about interference from the gardaí.
What’s more, is that these gangland shootings not only make Ireland ultimately safer in the long term, but do so without placing an extra strain on Ireland’s already crippled prison service. Saving even more of the tax payers money.
This is good news for the safety of the country, as the latest government report shows that soon enough, there should be no criminals left to kill and there will be no need for the Gardaí at all, which could save tax payers hundreds of millions of euro each year.
Already case loads have been significantly reduced for the gardaí, as a large portion of those they were investigating have been brutally murdered.
Minister for Justice Alan shatter commented:
The cuts to An Garda Síochána were met with objection at first, but the data shows that the number of criminals in Ireland has been slowly reducing, ultimately making the country safer. And that’s thanks to the violent criminals themselves, for taking the steps needed to help reduce crime in Ireland, without increasing our expenditure or placing more burdens on our legal system or prison service. They’re to be commended for helping to make this country a safer place.
With the progress that has been made so far, it’s expected that further cuts will be made to the gardaí in next years budget, to help facilitate the removal of more ganglang bosses even quicker than before.
