Gardai who were sworn in prematurely as part of the new coronavirus policing programme will begin their first day of duty today.

The new members will be community based and will help out with elderly and vulnerable people with 80 assigned to the north west region.

319 Gardai became full members last week after their training was fast tracked to deal with the crisis.

80 of those Gardai will start work in the north west today.
