Garda App to be rolled out nationally

208

A GARDA smartphone app which has been successfully piloted in Limerick over the past two years is to be rolled out nationally next year.

The ACTIVE Mobility app, which was first introduced in Limerick early last year, gives Gardaí access to real-time information on the roadside relating to vehicles and motorists they encounter.

Over 50 devices have been in use across the Limerick region as part of the pilot programme which forms part of the Mobility Strategy under the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland (CFPI).

Ahead of the national roll-out, the app has been enhanced to give users access to a new Fixed Charge Penalty feature and eircodes.
