Prop­erty mark­ing is off to a flyer!

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

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.
