The decision by the Garda authorities to draft 25 additional uniformed members into the Dundalk district in the wake of the murder of their colleague, Tony Golden, must be seen as an immediate response only to the tragedy.
The personnel are being transferred from stations in Dublin and the northern region.
The move is being backed by a big plainclothes operation to tackle the criminal and dissident republican gangs that have been on the rampage in the area.
