TD’s and Senators informed they can have security reviews conducted at their homes and offices. 

The Clerk of the Dáil, Peter Finnegan, has written to all TDs and Seantors notifying them that “arising from the security incident last week involving two Members of the Houses of the Oireachtas, An Garda Síochána have been in contact to say that, as per the advice given at security briefings for Members last year, if any Member requires guidance on security, he or she should liaise with their local Crime Prevention Officers (CPO).” 

The Clerk of the Dáil went on to note that the local CPOs “can arrange to have security reviews conducted at Members’ residences and offices, and can provide security and crime prevention advice on a one to one basis.” 

The Clerk also revealed that The Houses of the Oireachtas Commission, which overseas the operation of Leinster House and the Oireachtas, “has sought the sanction of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform for the introduction of a scheme to enable it to make a financial contribution towards the cost of security measures implemented by Members on the advice of An Garda Siochana.”
