I believe that public forums and meetings are a vital way of keeping in touch with the community on issues of importance. Some politicians hold these at election time, however I believe they are important to have constantly, and this is the third one which I have organised recently.

This one is on Local Crime and Crime Prevention, where we will be discussing crime prevention from a practical perspective, the establishment or reestablishment of potential neighbourhood watch schemes, what techniques have worked for communities locally etc. I am glad to invite anybody from Glasnevin, Drumcondra, Finglas, Ballymun, Beaumont, Santry or Whitehall who is interested in crime prevention to come along.

The meeting is Monday February 3rd at 6.30pm and is upstairs in The Comet.

If you would like to discuss any issue in advance of this meeting, please contact me on 085 7049415.
