Gardai Striking... Implications For Us.

Crossed wires here. You said the Airport police will lose their powers of arrest. That is different from moving gardaí off admin roles and replacing them with civilians.

(BTW, don't the civilians on passport duty have powers of arrest?)

The Airport police and civilians on passport duty only have power of arrest in the Airport or on its grounds. The Gardai on immigration duties will not be present so any arrests made on day of strike ie illegal entry to country will be detained in airport overnight instead of a Garda cell until the proper paperwork is processed for a court hearing.

The Airport police (completely different from An Garda) and trained civilians never had any power of arrest outside the Airport. Unless you want to cover a citizens arrest.

It was crossed wires. Is this what you mean?

All the crime stories of late would make you want to stay indoors under a blanket.

The courts will be less busy. Only people really before them will all already be in custody (prison) which wouldn't be the job of the Gardai escorting them anyway. Fridays are generally quieter court wise anyway as Judges like to get away early for their round of golf.

What else? PULSE won't be accessed. If a crime is committed and its serious of course it will be investigated but if a bag or phone is snatched probably not until the next day.

Thats it really. The Ordinary Joe Public probably won't notice a difference.

I could probably think of a few more differences later.

A friend of mine is a judge - she wont have a garda escort so cant work friday - she might give some of us a tour of court!!

What happens, If some property owner shoots/kills/maims or ends up in that condition. Because no Gardaí around, to protect them and or a collision happens on a road?

Here is the piece that I was asking about.
They only have power of arrest in the Airport or its grounds. This will also be phased out with civilians taking up their duties.

Are Airport police being phased out?

Sorry Ozren. No they are not being phased out. They are not members of the Gardai.

I think the mix up was when Gardai were exclusively doing passport and security checks.
I think we all got a bit confused there.

FYI only the Gardaí can arrest a person refused permission to enter the State at a port of entry. It is technically possible for a civilian to exercise these powers if issued a warrant by the Minister of Justice, but as yet none are trained or permitted to do so. The maximum detention in the port is 12 hours.

Edit - Oh wait I think its only Inspectors and Sergeants that have bottled it so far.

Pave the way for all 24/7 frontline staff to demand their conditions are met.

Yeah, the Country can well afford it and I'm not suggesting the frontline staff don't deserve it.
