Check­points

The Argus - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

An­other quite ef­fec­tive de­ter­rent to curb­ing crime has been the ran­dom and reg­u­lar check­points mounted by Gar­dai in the area.

They have had a favourable im­pact on crime, and also in dis­cour­ag­ing speed­ing and other mo­tor­ing of­fences.

Th­ese check­points are to con­tinue for the fore­see­able fu­ture, at least un­til the end of the year, a meet­ing of the Com­mu­nity Alert Com­mit­tee heard.

Since the in­tro­duc­tion of the check­points the level of crime has fallen.
