Gardaí have launched a high visibility nationwide policing plan for this weekend.

It will focus on supporting the vulnerable and crime prevention.

From 7am this morning a nationwide policing plan has come into effect for the weekend.

Extra gardai checkpoints will be in place across the country as well as more patrols in public parks and landmarks.

The aim of the high visibility campaign is to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and to stop criminal activity.

Gardaí will also be engaging with people to ensure they are complying with public health guidelines and say as a last resort they will use enforcement.

Speaking today, Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, John Twomey said:

"Since the start of the pandemic, Garda members throughout the country have being helping the vulnerable and those who feel isolated."

"This involved simple, but important tasks such as collecting their prescription, delivering their pension, or even socially distanced contact."

"If people need such assistance or know someone who does, please contact your local Garda station. We are here to help.”

This new policing plan will last until midnight on Sunday.
