Councillor calls for restoration of Donegal drug squad


Calls have been made for dedicated Garda Divisional Drugs Unit in Donegal.

Councillor James Pat McDaid has written to the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald saying there is a real crisis in Donegal with the increased misuse of substances.

He believes this is coupled with a decreased number of Gardai in the county, stating there is a lack of manpower in areas such as Letterkenny, Inishowen and in west Donegal.
Speaking to Highland Radio News, Cllr McDaid says the only way to tackle the drug problem to reinstate a specialist unit in Donegal.....
