Crime Prevention

On this month’s Crime Prevention Segment Sergeant Amanda Flood was in studio to discuss An Garda Síochána’s Crime Prevention Initiative “Campus Watch” which was initially introduced to third level institutions twenty years ago in 1997 and now has over fifty active Campus Watch schemes, which are supported by Community Gardaí across Ireland.

Campus Watch is based on the same principle of “Community Policing in Partnership”, as Neighbourhood & Business Watch and its primary objective is to make campuses and their environs a safer place.

During this academic year Garda Campus Watch Liaisons, in partnership with the Students Union, will host specific themed clinics on topics such as Anti Social Behaviour, Personal Safety, Drug Awareness and Cyber Crime. For more information on Campus Watch please visit the Garda website here
