Gardai are going to be based in train stations for the first time from next month.

They will start in Heuston Station in a bid to enhance safety.

This new Garda transport hub will open at Heuston on the 5th of May.

There, Gardai will have oversight of all public transport networks including trains, buses and trams.

There won't be any cells but officers will be on hand to respond to any incidents.

A similar centre is also then expected to open at Connolly Station.

The Justice Minister Simon Harris has told the Irish Independent he has listened to the public and politicians who have been raising safety issues with him

He says the move is designed to 'further strengthen' the links between Gardai and public transport operators.
