Gardai regularly put their lives at risk to protect the people and their property. For example, over the weekend and off-duty and unarmed Garda, in the Dublin area, tackled two men engaged in armed robbery of a shop.
Despite have a gun pointed at his head, he pursued the robbers and apprehended one. This is an example of the bravery and integrity of members of an unarmed force”.
