Personal Safety Advice

Police have received information that a 14 year old child was offered a ride whilst they were walking in Waterworks Road, Dynnyrne, by two men driving a car on Monday about 4pm.


Police are investigating and following a particular line of inquiry.


Nearby schools have issued a letter to parents and posted a safety advice message on their Facebook page.


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.


Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
