How It Works

We can ALL help to keep our community safe by being more aware of what is going on around us and reporting anything that doesn’t seem right.

Things to look out for...

  • Unusual activity in your area
  • Strangers on a neighbours property
  • Unknown cars or vans patrolling
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Damage to private or public property
  • Concern about a neighbour’s welfare

What You  Should Do…
Call 086 858 3049 in confidence and tell the Garda patrol about what you have seen. Give as much information as you can – descriptions of people and vehicles can make a big difference. And don’t worry – innocent people will NOT get in to trouble!

What You Should  NOT Do…
Write it off or assume others will report it! Do not put off making the call - the sooner you call, the quicker a response can be issued. 

REMEMBER – criminals work 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Your call really could help stop a crime from taking place and it could stop you from becoming their next victim!

"Insignificant" Details Do Add Up!

So you just saw a grey car acting suspiciously at 5pm in Lacora Glen but you don't have a make or registration number - not worth reporting, right? WRONG!

You might have seen a grey car in Lacora Glen at 5pm but someone else might have caught a partial registration number when they were in Stoneyford Park earlier, someone else might have noted it was a Mazda and someone else noted it had three males on-board! 

All these details DO add up and they DO help the gardai to create a picture of what has been going on. So please let the gardai determine what is significant and what isn't. IF IN DOUBT, REPORT IT!
