Ennis crime under review

The Ennis Chamber Garda Accord met this week to review actions from the last Ennis Joint Policing Committee Meeting and to discuss the recent crimes on businesses in the town.

Ennis Chamber established the Ennis Chamber Garda Accord in 2003 as a method of close communication and interaction between the business community and gardaí. Projects have included the establishment of the Business Liaison Garda Post and the campaign to install a state-of-the-art public CCTV system for Ennis, as well as ongoing collaboration in relation to the Key Holders Registry, Christmas pedestrianisation and crime prevention seminars.

Representatives of Ennis Chamber raised the concerns of the business community in relation to the recent burglaries with Inspector Tom Kennedy, who reported on progress that has been made in relation to the crimes. He also referred to the advice and support that is available to businesses in terms of crime prevention measures, which is a free service from gardaí.
