Home security Exhibition in Ardboyne Hotel, Navan 26-11-11 from 11am to 8pm.
In light of the number of burglaries and thefts recently around the county I am putting together a Home Security Exhibition which will be held in the Ardboyne Hotel on Saturday the 26 November 2011 from 11am to 8pm. It is hoped to have a cross section of exhibitors which will cover all aspects of home security. I will have alarm companies, CCTV companies, the new product for marking property Smartwater, fire equipment, electric gates, tracking devices for cars and hopefully laptops, window security etching, door security and grills, locksmiths etc. When I have a complete list I will forward around a list of the exhibitors and what they do.
If anybody is interested in taking part in the exhibition please contact me ASAP as the slots are filling up. If you know of anybody that has a good product and would be of interest in the exhibition please contact them to let them know or pass their details on to me immediately.
Sergeant Dean Kerins
Crime Prevention Officer.
When we all last met in the courtyard,we spoke of hosting a Crime Prevention evening for the whole community rather than one estate at a time.I have now secured the Rugby club on Tuesday 19th October.The start time is 8:30pm.
Joining us on the night will be Sgt Dean Kierns ( county crime prevention officer ), our local community garda officers, members of the Joint Policing committee,The Mayor of Navan ( Cllr Phil Brennan ) and also an invitation has gone out to all our local Councillor’s and T.D’s to attend our public meeting regarding this serious issue.There will also be local media coverage on the night.
I am asking all J.A.C.C. members and Chairs of each resident association to spread the word in their own estates in regard to this meeting.To try and ensure a good attendance from their own estates. If you could pop info through all letter boxes,community pages,hang notice in front of estates to advertise night.I cannot express enough how important it is to have a good attendance on the night.It will be our only opportunity to have all relevant groups under the one roof together.
The best way to tackle crime is to work together as a community and to speak directly to the people who can make a difference.I feel it is important that the residents in our community should be heard.NOW IS YOUR CHANCE.Johnstown needs a sub garda station and I hope to high light this need on the night.
Please let me know your thoughts on this issue.
Chair of J.A.C.C
