Property marking is off to a flyer!
The first ‘roll out’ of the Telesis property marking unit took place in Grange last Saturday.
The unit was acquired by Sligo County Council following a recommendation from the Sligo Joint Policing Committee.
JPC Chair Councillor Rosaleen O Grady said the initiative was hugely significant in terms of combating crime, especially in rural areas, and she commended Chief Superintendent Aidan Glacken and colleagues on the JPC for overseeing the acquisition of the unit.
She said it will be welcomed by householders, business people and farmers throughout the county.
Further community events are taking place over the coming weeks, with the Teeling Centre in Collooney the venue on Saturday next.
Launching the new Telesis machine in Grange village at Gilroys Yard were Jim Fox Crime Prevetion Officer, Garda Fiach O’Toole, Cllr. Marie Casserly, Cllr Seamus Kilgannon, Mike Healy Chairman Grange district community alert, Mayor Rosaleen O’Grady, Cllr Hubert Keaney, Donal Gilroy and Johnny Waters.
