This campaign will reaffirm the ethos of ‘Community Policing’ throughout the country, through the hosting of various activities within local communities. The campaign affords An Garda Síochána, an opportunity to give our public some simple, but effective Crime Prevention and Road Safety Advice.

The primary focus during this Campaign will be in the following areas:
