Community group gifts sat navs to Cork gardaí25/04/2012 - 07:57:19
A community group in Cork has kitted out their local Garda cars with sat-nav systems.
Dunderrow Community alert has paid for two patrol cars to be equipped with GPS to help officers get to callouts as quickly as possible.
Feedback from gardaí is said to have been very positive, and the group is calling on other local organisations to follow their lead.
Dunderrow Community Alert chairman, Ger O’Leary confirmed they paid for GPS mapping systems to be installed in two patrol cars in Kinsale, Co Cork, last week.
"We were looking at ways to ensure emergency services got to scenes as quickly as possible, so we decided to get them for the patrol cars which cover our area," said Mr O’Leary.
