Crime Prevention Advice

This months safety call presented by Sgt Kelvin Courtney included information on the 10th Garda ‘Supporting Safer Communities’ Campaign that will take place from Tuesday 25th September to Tuesday 2nd October 2012.

This ‘Supporting Safer Communities’ campaign will primarily focus on:

The campaign will see many local initiatives such as Garda station open days or Garda information clinics, as well as larger national events all aimed at improving community safety.  Sergeant Courtney offered some simple crime prevention advice that can help reduce the number of burglaries.
