first_imgNewsLocal NewsFurther cuts to garda resources expectedBy admin – May 2, 2012 589 GARDA resources are set to be further cut in Limerick in the next 12 months, with preparations already underway to cope with additional pressure on the force. Chief Superintendent, Dave Sheehan said that the division had no choice but to meet the extra demand on resources following cuts. “We know where numbers are set to fall in the next 12 months and have made plans to cope with them,” he told the meeting, attended by cllrs, TDs and senior garda members. “It’s difficult but there’s nothing we can do”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Gardaí in Limerick have already had to face the closure of two rural stations, a reduction in patrol cars and an embargo on recruitment.And Chief Supt. Sheehan said the closure of further garda stations could not be ruled out.He also praised the work of the garda reserve unit.“Even now preparing rosters is difficult; We are acutely aware of government policy and have to use the resources we have in the division to provide the service.“The garda reserve takes off a bit of the pressure.“In the course of the college rag weeks and Thomond Park events, we couldn’t cope without them”.Cllr James Collins highlighted the vacant position of superintendent in Askeaton and queried the policy in the case of a serious crime in the vicinity.“We have a fallout situation in the case of an emergency that is not dependent on having a superintendent in Askeaton,” the head of the Limerick garda division replied.“Inspector Eamon O’Neill is currently acting supt. and in the case of a crime scene, whoever’s on call will attend as all superintendents cannot be away at the same time”.Cllr Kevin Sheahan called for less Joint Policing Committee meetings for the individual authority and for more at a district level.“Once a year for these meetings is enough; I hate to see individuals and resources overstretched”.Chief Supt. Sheehan agreed, saying that the meetings should be more strategic in content and that issues “such as wandering horses” should be dealt with at local level.

Another parent arrested as part of Varsity Blues college admissions scandal

first_imgLPETTET/iStock(NEW YORK) — Another parent has been arrested in connection to the so-called “Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal, this time for allegedly spending $400,000 to get her son a spot at the University of California-Los Angeles.The Department of Justice announced Tuesday that a Chinese woman based in Canada named Xiaoning Sui has been arrested in Spain in connection to her alleged efforts to get her son into UCLA.Sui, 48, faces one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. She is being detained in Spain but the Department of Justice notes that authorities plan to extradite her to Boston.The indictment, which was unsealed on Tuesday in federal court, details how Sui allegedly agreed to pay the college admissions scandal’s alleged ringleader Rick Singer $400,000 to have her son be pitched as a soccer recruit to UCLA to gain admission to the school.An alleged co-conspirator named Laura Janke reportedly made a fake soccer profile for Sui’s son, who is not named in the Department of Justice news release and whose age is also not shared.Janke is cooperating with the government’s investigation and previously plead guilty, the release states.Sui allegedly made two payments to Singer’s fake charitable organization, the first for $100,000 in October 2018 and the second for $300,000 in November 2018, after her son had been admitted by UCLA and awarded a 25% scholarship, the Department of Justice release states.This new arrest comes days after one of the highest profile suspects in the scandal was sentenced.Actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in prison, ordered to pay a $30,000 fine, and complete 250 hours of community service for paying $15,000 to have someone rig her daughter’s SAT score.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
