Crime Prevention

Assault at Corkagh Park, Clondalkin, Dublin 22 on the 21/7/16

On this month’s Crime Prevention segment Sergeant Kelvin Courtney was in studio to cover a number of topics including Firearm Safety, An Garda Síochana’s Lock up Light up Campaign and Halloween Safety.

An Garda Síochana’s message in relation to Firearm Safety is very clear, if you have a Firearm, please take the time to review your security procedures, always use your firearm in a safe manner, keep your firearm clean and well maintained and remember to act at all times within the firearms legislation. A small video transmission will be broadcast to illustrate these points.

As the winter sets in and the clocks go back next week An Garda Síochana urges all residents to be extra vigilant in respect of their home security. Sergeant Courtney was in studio to offer advice and reassurance to the public on the steps they can take to ensure their home and their property is safe. As part of Operation Thor An Garda Síochana are re-launching the Lock Up Light Up Campaign aimed at preventing burglaries.

Sergeant Courtney also offered Crime Prevention advice on how to remain safe on one of the busiest nights for emergency services, Halloween. He will illustrate this appeal with images of injuries received as a result of a bonfire or firework during the Halloween celebrations.
