Redeployment of gardaí within Kerry to areas with a high number of tourists is being considered for the summer months.
At the recent Joint Policing Committee meeting, several county councillors asked the council and An Garda Síochána if they had the resources to deal with the busy summer that's expected in Kerry.
Chief Superintendent of the Kerry Garda Division, Eileen Foster, said the county will get very few additional resources for the summer, but there will be policing plans in place.
Councillors expressed concerns about garda resources in certain areas of Kerry, that will receive a massive increase in visitor numbers during the summer.
Superintendent of the Tralee Garda District, Fearghal Pattwell, said there will be a specific district policing plan in place for the summer months in the Tralee area.
He added the priority will be high visibility patrolling, and that redeploying gardaí to areas with high volumes of tourists, such as Dingle, Castlegregory, Banna and Ardfert is being considered.
Superintendent of the Killarney Garda District, Flor Murphy, added redeployment in the Killarney and South Kerry areas where necessary is also being looked at.
While Superintendent of the Listowel Garda District, Paul Kennedy, said redeployment to areas such as Ballybunion and Ballyheigue is under consideration.
He also added the focus will be on high visibility, with potential mountain bike patrols in these coastal areas.
Chief Superintendent Foster said gardaí will review the policing plans as the weeks progress to see how they're working and if they need to be tweaked.
