PSNI Neighbourhood and Response officers in Newry recently visited homes in the Dublin Road and Chancellors Road areas to highlight the steps that home owners can take to protect their property from burglary. Officers carried out joint foot patrols, including the Ravens Glen and Chancellors Hall areas, posted information leaflets on home safety and the Quick Check Scheme through doors. A vehicle checkpoint was also conducted.

Speaking to Newry Times, Constable Valentine explained: “We are working to detect and deter potential burglars and hope that patrols in the area also offer reassurance and peace of mind to residents.We also want to encourage everyone to look after their own neighbourhood and report any activity which looks out of place or suspicious to us straight away.”

“We are working with the local community to establish further new Neighbourhood Watch Schemes in Chancellors Road and Dublin Road. A number of residents have expressed interest in becoming involved in a scheme and we are hopeful that these will be established in the coming weeks.”

He added, “If anyone would like information on home safety they can contact their local neighbourhood policing team or crime prevention officer. The neighbourhood team can also be contacted for further information on neighbourhood watch schemes. The number to phone is 0845 600 8000.”
