Launch of Castleland Park Balbriggan Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

October 17, 2021 0

The official Launch of the Castleland Park, Balbriggan Neighbourhood Watch scheme took place today the 16th October 2021 at 12 o clock. The Residents of Castleland Park have been very active in their community for a number of years and have a great relationship with local Gardai.

Led by Lorna Gallagher, Rebecca Williamson and Louise Weinstein, the residents were proactive in setting up the Neighbourhood Watch scheme along with a Text Alert scheme for the estate assisted by local Community Gardai.

The scheme has been officially registered with the National Community Policing Unit on the national database for some time now, but due to Covid restrictions, an official launch had to be delayed.

Superintendent Paul Franey and Sergeant Fiona Savidge attended the launch accompanied by Community Gardai. Garda Kevin Fitzpatrick and Garda Tim McCallion provided proerty marking service for bikes along with imparting crime prevention advice.

Local Fingal Councillors Grainne Maguire, Tony Murphy, Karen Power and Seána Ó Rodaigh Fingal Lord Mayor were at the launch to show their support.

It is hoped that the launch of this scheme may encourage other residents to come together in other estates to form Neighbourhood Watch schemes of their own.
