Crime Prevention - “Streetwise”

On this month’s Crime Prevention Segment, Sergeant Kelvin Courtney was in studio to discuss the National Crime Prevention & Reduction Campaign “Streetwise” that will commence in March 2017.

This campaign is part of An Garda Síochána’s Anti-Crime Strategy, Operation Thor and will be supported by three pillars namely, Education / Awareness, Crime Prevention and Enforcement.

The objective of this campaign is to communicate a strong “personal safety” message to the public in advance of and during the St. Patrick’s Day Festival.

Sergeant Courtney advised the public to plan their journey to and from their destination when socialising in towns and cities.
