The government have stepped up policing around the country by deploying a number of armed gardai around a number of towns and cities during the covid-19 outbreak.
A number of armed gardai units have been deployed around Irish cities and towns in an effort to maintain public order.

There have no major criminal incidents yet, but opportunistic and organized thieves might strike as the country shuts down.
