Operation Thor underway to stop Christmas criminals

Operation Thor Checkpoints were conducted throughout Saturday 30th November 2019 in 15 Districts in the 5 Divisions (Kildare/Meath/Laois-Offaly/Westmeath/Wicklow) in the Eastern Region.

A two-day operation was also carried out at locations throughout on Friday and Saturday.

During the operation a disqualified driver was caught driving in Kilcoole.

The aim of this operation is to have a greater Garda High visibility presence patrolling and conducting checkpoints in each Division as traffic/movement of the public increases in the run up to Christmas.

These High visibility patrols and checkpoints will have prevented Burglaries, disrupted the movement of travelling criminals by the seizure of vehicles under section 41 of the Road Traffic Act, monitor the movement of travelling criminals with the recording of Intelligence on Pulse and finally increase public confidence with the visible presence of marked Garda vehicles patrolling the Divisions
