Tagging of Criminals welcomed by Mitchell

The Minister for Justice has announced that a system of electronic tagging of criminals will be introduced as well as more Garda resources’ and fast cars. A particular focus will be on about 200 habitual criminals in a number of gangs.

‘I welcome the tagging which will allow the Garda to monitor the criminals and is cheaper and more effective than imprisonment. A large number of burglaries are by repeat offenders who have been roaming the motorways and I hope this will curb them’.
