Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan-Monaghan and North Meath Niamh Smyth is urging members of the public in Bailieborough to mark their property at an upcoming Community Alert Event.
Deputy Smyth as Chairperson of Bailieborough Community Alert was commenting ahead the Property Marking week in Bailieborough where the Garda Property Marking Machine will be on hand for businesses, farmers and householders to utilise.
“Following on from a number of public meeting hosted by Deputy Smyth and her colleague Fianna Fáil’s Spokesperson on Justice Jim O’Callaghan the week long marking event will take place from the 29th of November until the 4th of December in the Bailieborough area for everyone who wants to get their property marked. Local members from Bailieborough Community Alert will be at hand to call to mark items for businesses, householders and farmers.”“The machine has been purchased by Cavan County Council to assist local communities in the fight against crime and particularly theft. It puts your EIRCODE as a marker on the property to make it identifiable as yours.
Deputy Smyth continued, “Our Community Alert Committee will be taking bookings for the marking machine. We have co-ordinated our time and days by area on certain days and Alison on our committee will be taking bookings on 089-4395654 between 10am and 11.30am and again between 7pm and 8pm daily.”
Deputy Smyth concluded, “I would encourage as many as possible to take part in this marking exercise and be one step ahead of criminals. For far too long now we have seen property recovered as part of powerful work by our Gardaí but the failure to return this property to its rightful owner has been difficult. Granted, I wish that these type of crimes didn’t happen at all but they are and I feel as a community, we need to be proactive.”
