  • Contact the Project Office at the Garda National Drugs Unit


At an initial meeting Gardaí will:

  • Provide practical safety information.

  • Provide advice in relation to particular threats or instances of intimidation.

  • Provide information on appropriate drug support services for the individual in the family who is accruing drug debts.

  • Outline how to make a formal complaint, what is involved, what happens after and possible outcomes. It is the decision of the person being intimidated if they want to make a formal complaint. If you wish to meet with the Inspector, although are apprehensive to meet in the Garda station, or to meet with an Inspector in uniform, you may request to meet the Inspector in a neutral venue with the Inspector in plain clothes.
