Cal­lan seeks to close lo­cal crime hot spots

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

SPEAK­ING this week, Cllr Kevin Cal­lan said that the sites around Drogheda where on­go­ing il­le­gal ac­tiv­ity is be­ing car­ried out need to be shut down where pos­si­ble.

‘ The time has come for lo­ca­tions of crime to be sys­tem­at­i­cally shut down, in­clud­ing routes and short cuts be­tween es­tates where peo­ple who break the law abuse the ac­cess they have to evade Garda in­ter­fer­ence.

‘In the com­ing weeks I’m ask­ing peo­ple to come for­ward and help us iden­tify these crime hot spots and if pos­si­ble we can work to make them less at­trac­tive to crim­i­nals.’
