As Garda authorities announced the transfers of some of the top Garda officers in the county this week, it has been confirmed that the District Headquarters in Glenties will close down on November 11th, this year.
The existing Glenties District will be divided between two areas - Ballyshannon and Milford.
A spokesperson for the gardaí confirmed that the Ballyshannon area will now stretch as far as the Gweebarra Bridge and that the area on the other side of the bridge, including Dungloe and the Rosses, will be incorporated into the Milford District.
The spokesperson stressed that this move would not affect the normal Garda operations in the Glenties area and that all other Garda services, with the exception of the superintendant’s office, would be maintained as normal.
