Garda Community Safety Week runs from April 27th to May 3rd. The idea of the week is to get people to “Think safe and be safe.”

The week will be marked by a series of high profile crime prevention/reduction initiatives nationally as well as increased activity by local Gardaí and Garda Crime Prevention Officers.

Circulation of new Crime Prevention and Community Safety advice leaflets to the public in several forums including libraries and on the Garda website.

The Mobile Incident Command units will be in locations throughout the Dublin Metropolitan Region during the week, where Gardaí will be distributing the new crime prevention literature and meeting members of the public.

Neighbourhood Watch and Community Alert meetings will be held in locations throughout the country and community Gardaí will visit primary schools to discuss basic road safety and crime prevention steps.

Chief Superintendent John O'Driscoll from Garda Community Relations will discuss the Community Safety Week on Crimecall.
