Anti-social behaviour on trains targeted in new Garda operation

Galway Daily news Gardaí launch operation against anti-social behaviour on trains

Gardaí have launched a new initiative meant to curb anti-social behaviour on railways with additional policing at stations and on trains.

Operation Twin Tracks will see Gardaí working with Iarnród Eireann staff to deliver an increased garda presence around trains to help cut down on anti-social behaviour

Pictured are local officers Garda Maria Freely and Garda Rodgers with Irish Rail staff at Ceannt Station for the launch of this initiative.

Last month a train travelling from Dublin to Galway was forced to make an unscheduled stop at Kildare while gardaí were called to an incident on board.

To prevent incidents like this in the future gardaí will be patrolling train stations, as well as travelling between stations to provide a presence on the trains themselves.
