Gardai need new cars – says Garda Inspectorate Chief speaking in Cork

The head of the Garda Inspectorate says the problem of aging Garda squad
cars is a “ticking timebomb”,
Chief Inspector Bob Olson was in Cork City yesterday as guest speaker at
the Cities “Joint Policing Committee” meeting.
The role of the Garda Inspectorate
– which is separate from both the Gardai, and Ombudsman –
is to take a longer term view, and advise the force how to best use its
resources.
At the moment Garda cars are retired when they reach 300-thousand
kilometres,
and the Inspector says the practice of swapping high milage rural cars with
lower milage urban cars is only a “band aid” solution.
Chief Inspector Bob Olson, was careful not to attack the Government,
but says the Gardai DO need new cars
