psni56Police in Newry, Mourne & Down are encouraging people to make this a Christmas to remember for all the right reasons. Over the coming weeks the police will be issuing advice and crime prevention tips to keep people safe in their homes, businesses, online, while out socialising and shopping as well as on the roads as part of ‘Operation Season’s Greetings’. Speaking to Newry Times, Superintendent Paul Reid said, “We would like everyone across Northern Ireland to have a crime free Christmas, however criminals look at the festive season in a different light – as the opportune time to benefit from crime. “As part of this year’s Operation Season’s Greetings, officers will take extra steps to deter and detect criminals exploiting the busy festive season for their own ends – with a special focus being placed on preventing burglaries, keeping party-goers safe and preventing road traffic collisions.

If you notice any suspicious activity in your neighbourhood, or when out and about, please report it to us straight away. “If possible make a note of details such as descriptions or vehicle registration numbers which will help us in any investigation or to build a detailed picture of criminal activity.
