MARCH 14 has been confirmed as the day Stepaside Garda Station will close for good.
On February 18, a memo sent to the station by Superintendant John Hand stated that the station will close on that date, and that staff be duly notified.
Deputy Shane Ross (Ind) said: “We will not take this lying down, and will do all that is possible to resist the closure. I’m meeting Minister [for Justice] Alan Shatter on Friday to hand him our petition of 3,000 signatures against the closure.”
Minister Shatter’s office said: “The closure of any particular Garda station will not affect the procedure for the Garda response to emergency calls, which will continue as it is at present in the Dublin Metropolitan Region.”
