How can we help?

Can an authorised officer detain me if I don’t have a valid ticket?

Yes. If an authorised officer reasonably suspects that a person is committing or has committed an offence under Section 129 of the Railway Safety Act 2005, he or she may require the person to give his or her name and address and, if the person fails or refuses to do so or gives a name that the authorised officer reasonably suspects is false or misleading, the authorised officer may arrest that person without warrant and deliver, as soon as practicable, the person into the custody of a member of the Garda Síochána to be dealt with according to law.
