PSNI attend Newry car cruise
The event, organised by Newry based cruise forum, Ignition 247.com in conjunction with jon44w.com, provided an opportunity for the local community to speak to neighbourhood officers about road safety and other issues on an informal setting.
The Neighbourhood Team, supported by PSNI Road and Armed Support Unit and Burkes of Cornascriebe, displayed a number of police vehicles including the Project Evo car, the PSNI tractor, a mobile police station, liveried ANPR car, a PSNI motorcycle and push bike.
Sergeant Kenny Gracey, Newry NPT, spoke to Newry Times and said: “We took part in the cruise in the hope that we might be able to talk with some of the local community and publicise our road safety messages. We were delighted and surprised at the genuine interest shown by the public.”
“Lots of families attended and the younger children were thrilled to get looking at the motorcycle and tractor. We also received hundreds of questions around speed limits, drink driving and modifying cars, to name a few.”
He added, “The event was a real success and we are looking forward to taking part in similar events in the future.”
