Longford District Garda National Community Engagement Day in conjunction with the Irish Farmers Association also took place on Thursday 28th April at Ballymahon Mart.
The day was primarily organized for locations in rural Ireland and was used to provide crime prevention and personal safety advice to members of the public while engaging with the farming community and people in rural areas.
Members of the Longford Community Policing Unit and the Longford Irish Farmers Association were on hand between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to meet and greet as many people as possible.
Sergeant Darran Conlon and Garda Emma Kiernan were warmly welcomed by all present who appreciated the information provided on crime prevention.
It was also an opportunity to update people on the Longford Community Safety Partnership initiative, Longford County Council’s text alert and upcoming property marking events.
This was organized in collaboration with Gavin White and Michael Finn from the Irish Farmers Association.
Also in attendance were Longford County Council Service Manager Barbara Heslin and Longford Community Safety Partnership Coordinator Janine Bartley. Thanks to Mrs. Lily Trautt and her team at Ballymahon Mart for organizing the event.
