Kilkenny Joint Policing Committee

Kilkenny Joint Policing Committee (JPC)

Terms of Reference 

The Garda Síochána Act 2005 introduced the establishment of Joint Policing Committees (JPCS), whose function is to ' to serve as a forum for consultation, discussion and recommendations on matters affecting the policing of the local authority's administrative area'. JPCs represent a collaborative approach between local authorities, An Garda Síochána and the community and voluntary sector in supporting policing and enhancing community safety.

Key specific functions of the JPC, as cited in section 36(2) of the Garda Síochána Act are:

(a) Keep under review:
i. the levels and patterns of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in that area (including the patterns and levels of misuse of alcohol and drugs) and
ii. the factors underlying and contributing to the levels of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in the area

JPCs are required to approach their work strategically, so as to ensure a coordinated and focused approach in tracking crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour within their administrative areas.
