New garda chief committed to tackling crime in Kerry

The new Chief Superintendent for Kerry says his priority will be to tackle a number of problems facing gardai in the county. Tom Conway is identifying public order offences and roads deaths as areas of concern. In his first interview with Radio Kerry since taking over from Tony McNamara, Chief Superintendent Conway says he wants to develop a good working relationship between gardai and the public. He says he is happy that gardai in Kerry are doing their utmost to address the problems associated with public order offences. The new Chief Superintendent for the county says it is a nationwide issue but he says he would like to develop a working relationship between gardai and community groups in relation to anti-social behaviour. Chief Supt Conway says most public order incidents are alcohol related.
