The Donegal Family Resource Centre (DFRC) in Donegal Town will be holding a crime prevention information evening on Wednesday, January 23 at 7.30pm.
Chairman of the DFRC, Jim McLaughlin, said: “The centre has organised a public event in order that local Gardaí can provide information to local people concerning crime prevention techniques and initiatives.
“We will be discussing techniques that we can implement for our own personal protection and we will also look at the establishment of new Neighbourhood Watch and Community Alert Schemes.
“This is a community response to the present crime wave which seems to be particularly aimed against our older citizens. Through this event, we hope to make people more aware of efforts and initiatives that we can all engage with. Given the continuing situation it is now crucial that we as a community look out for one another, protect each other and work closely with the Gardaí to prevent and apprehend criminals who are targeting our neighbours and friends.”
The Crime Prevention evening will be addressed by representatives of An Garda Siochana at the Donegal Family Resource Centre. The event will start at 7.30pm sharp. For further information contact DFRC 074 972 5337.
