The new division will see the amalgamation of the current Cork North and Cork West Garda divisions

A meeting of the Cork County Joint Policing Committee heard that the plan will consolidate the work of certain specialist units, provide enhanced community policing, and a more visible garda presence on the ground in towns, villages, and isolated rural areas.

However senior gardai say they will need more staff for the newly created Cork County division with the preferred personnel level for the new division to stand at around 900

The new division’s headquarters will be located in Macroom when a Garda station is built there but until then it will be based in Bandon.
