Shannon Chamber, in conjunction with the Community Policing unit in Shannon Garda Station, is seeking to re-launch a Business Watch scheme in Shannon.
Business Watch is a crime prevention programme designed by An Garda Siochana. It is similar to the Neighbourhood Watch and Community Alert scheme, whereby the Gardai and the community come together to prevent and reduce crime; in this instance, the Business Watch scheme’s focus is the business community.
Business Watch provides a framework whereby the business community can join together and be instrumental in preventing crime in their own community. Through awareness and observation, businesses can become extra ‘eyes and ears’ of the Gardai and act as ‘Watchmen’ to their own and neighbouring premises in the prevention of crime.
Shannon Chamber is delighted to be associated with this initiative and invites your company to become a Business Watch member. That simply means being alert, aware, and being a good neighbour by reporting anything you regard as criminally remiss in your area.
To find out how the Business Watch Scheme works and how your company can become involved, we invite you to attend this briefing session with keynote speakers:
- Garda Paul S Clancy, Community Policing Unit, Shannon Garda and
- Detective Sergeant Kevin O’Hagan
This briefing is free of charge.
Registration from 7.30 am
