Lock Up and Light Up this Winter

Since Operation Thor was launched on 2nd November 2015 domestic burglaries have fallen nationally by approximately 30%.

However as we approach the winter months householders need to be vigilant as traditionally burglaries rise in winter time.

*   In winter, residential burglaries increase by 23%.
*   Over 45% of residential burglaries in winter occur between 5pm and 11pm.
*   In 19% of burglaries, entry is through an unsecured door or window.
*   Jewellery and cash are the most common objects stolen during burglaries.
*   The typical value stolen per incident in the last twelve months is €600.
*   There were over 160 cases where car keys were “fished” through the letterbox in the past year.
*   More incidents reported by an alarm activation were detected than not detected.

Whether you are at home or going out, remember to turn on some lights, use timer switches, lock all doors and windows, use an alarm, store keys away from windows and letter boxes and don’t store large amounts of cash or jewellery in the house. 

Lock Up Light Up.

New Road Safety Ad Focuses On Devastation Caused By Drink-Driving

The message behind the ‘Crashed Lives’ campaign is that drink driving destroys lives, families and communities. As the festive season approaches, the RSA and An Garda Síochána have issued a stark warning to road-users about the consequences of drink-driving.

Earlier this year, the RSA’s Pre-Crash Report on Alcohol, which examined Garda forensic investigation files into fatal crashes between 2008 and 2012, showed that alcohol was a factor in 38% of all fatal collisions (driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist and cyclist), claiming the lives of 286 people. 29% of drivers and motorcyclists killed had consumed alcohol.
