The Capital Investment Plan for An Garda Síochána (AGS) 2016 -2021, includes for the provision of a Property Exhibits Management Store (PEMS) at Drogheda Garda Station. It is also proposed to provide additional locker room facilities.

The deliberative process regarding the brief of requirements and scope of works between the Office of Public Works and AGS is now completed and AGS signoff to the proposed scheme has been received. OPW will now progress the Part 9 Planning Application and commence the tender process for procurement of the works.

An estimate of cost is not yet available and expenditure on the works is unlikely in 2019.
