Crime Prevention

Operation Thor and the Lock Up Light Up campaign has sought to influence home and business owners behaviour when it comes to securing their premises. Burglaries have fallen 30% from 2015 and are at their lowest levels since 2012. Winter burglaries are down 19% compared to the previous winter.

Most burglars will enter your home via the front or rear door. To deter the burglar ensure the structure and fitting of the door is of a good standard. The door’s security is dependent on the quality of the lock in the door. If you are considering upgrading your doors An Garda Síochána recommend PAS 24-2016 standard.

See Crime Prevention tab for information on home security.
