Personal Safety Advice



Police have spoken to the driver of the vehicle involved with offering a lift to a young person in Waterworks Road, Dynnyrne earlier in the week.


There will be no charges arising and whilst this matter has resolved itself without any criminality involved, it has served as a timely reminder for families and the community in general to discuss the relevant aspects of “stranger danger”.


Police encourage parents to reiterate personal safety messages to their children:


  • Walk with friends in pairs or groups, and be aware of your surroundings. Report and suspicious behaviour to the school, parents or police.
  • Try and remember a description of vehicle or distinctive clothing or a registration number and call police on 131 444.


Our main message is that there is no need to panic but to be aware of your own personal safety.
