Airport Police

About the Airport Police Service 

The Airport Police Service (APS) is responsible for general policing and aviation security duties at the State airports in Dublin and Cork. We are also tasked with the safety of the State airports and the protection of civil aviation from unlawful acts of interference.

Our duties also include responding to emergency situations, traffic management and dealing with the preservation of good order to ensure all users of State airports can enjoy a safe environment while working or travelling through the airports. The Airport Police are "Authorised Officers" under the Airports and Aviation Acts 1936 to 2014 and as such have full policing powers within the State airports. Traffic management within the airport is the responsibility of the Airport Police.

The methods of enforcement used for parking or traffic offences are clamping, towing and Fixed Payment Notices. Any vehicle parked in contravention of the Airport Bye-Laws may be subject to any of these methods of enforcement.
