Pub­lic urged to lend sup­port

Bray People - - Bray One-act Play Festival Awards -

CRIME in Grey­stones in­creased by 10 per cent last year but was still less than 2006.

Su­per­in­ten­dant Mick Lerni­han told mem­bers of Grey­stones Joint Polic­ing Com­mit­tee that the crime rate in the area dropped 15 per cent in 2007 but rose by 10 per cent in 2008. ‘It is not at the same level as 2006 but it is climb­ing back up to­wards it’, he warned.

He ap­pealed to mem­bers of the pub­lic to con­tact gar­daí if they no­ticed any­thing sus­pi­cious in a bid to curb crime.

‘We do need the help and as­sis­tance of the pub­lic to re­port sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity’, he said.

He went on to say that since Jan­uary 1 the Grey­stones gar­daí had been op­er­at­ing a num­ber of high pro­file check points in the area and said ‘you would be sur­prised at the num­ber of peo­ple com­ing in from North Dublin and West Dublin. They are not here for the good of their health. We have to erad­i­cate this’, he said.
