Roscommon Independent deputy Denis Naughten has sought reassurance from Minister Charlie Flanagan that Roscommon Town will retain its status as a Garda Divisional Headquarters in any re-organisation of Garda Divisions.

He says recent reports on a draft proposal for the Garda re-organisation of the force is suggesting that the Roscommon/Longford Division would be merged with Mayo under the changes which are due to be introduced at the end of the year.

This would mean that there would be a single Garda Divisional Headquarters for this new super-division and deputy Naughten says the current Garda HQ in Roscommon Town is geographically well suited to service this expanded area.

He says no final decision has been made on the re-configuration of the divisions but that people are concerned that Roscommon could lose out in the process.
