Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald is to look for extra resources to help the Gardaí tackle gangland crime.
Minister Fitzgerald will tell this morning's Cabinet meeting that the country needs so-called "saturation policing".
As part of the plan, the Minister wants to create a 'mini' Criminal Assets Bureau to clampdown on smaller offenders and target assets of a lower value - possibly as low as €1,000.
She also wants to boost the numbers of officers in affected areas and bring in new rules to catch Revenue and Social Welfare cheats.
It is understood the Taoiseach has already said that whatever resources are needed will be made available.
The move comes as a woman in her 40s is to appear in court this morning in connection with the latest gangland murder.
She is being charged with withholding information that could have prevented a serious offence, after 35-year-old Gareth Hutch was shot dead outside his home in Dublin's north inner city last Tuesday.
