“Garda Supporting Safer Communities Campaign 2012”,

As part of the “Garda Supporting Safer Communities Campaign 2012”,  An Garda Síochána in Mayo are taking a pro active approach regarding Crime Prevention and are holding a Home Security Exhibition on Saturday, the 24th November at The Park Hotel, Kiltimagh from 10am to 5pm.


Entry is free and John O’Mahoney TD will be opening the Exhibition.

Superintendent Colm Fox of Swinford Garda station said that ‘There will be a number of security experts and companies that specialise in Home Security systems present on the day. We also expect to be in a position to carry out a limited engraving service.  Therefore, we  encourage any person with portable bulky items such as  bicycles to bring them along on the day, for engraving.’’


In 2011, there were 27,439  burglaries and related incidents nationwide. 30% of all these burglaries occurred through the front door making this point of entry the most common. Almost 25% of all these burglaries took place during the day, between 12 noon and 4pm. There is a Home Security ‘Checklist challenge’ available here and on the Garda website at www.garda.ie  with some simple but effective burglary prevention advice.
 

The Park hotel Kiltimagh will be doing a special rate hot lunch with tea/coffee for €9 and Chantilly scones with tea/coffee for €3.  We invite all readers with an interest in Home Security to join us at this exhibition.  Any proceeds made on the day will go directly towards Mayo/Roscommon Hospice.
