Crime Prevention

On this month’s Crime Prevention segment Sergeant Graham Kavanagh was in studio to provide the public with personal safety advice for the coming summer months. 

Graham highlighted the importance of being Streetwise when it came to spending time outside this summer. He reminded the public that with the country opening up there may be increased opportunity for thefts, assaults and public order offences to take place. He explained that with outdoor dining there would be increased potential for phone and handbag theft to occur and outlined the steps you can take in order to ensure your safety in this regard. 

Sergeant Kavanagh spoke about Operation Soteria, the new anti-assault strategy being implemented by AGS. This operation involves conducting high visibility patrols, proactive policing of hot spot locations and engagement with retailers and publicans. 

Sergeant Kavanagh explained how AGS have been liaising closely with public transport companies over the last twelve months on anti-social prevention measures. 

Finally Sergeant Kavanagh outlined the ‘Use Your Brains Not Your Fist’ campaign being promoted by AGS in order to dissuade people from getting involved in physical altercations this summer.
