BANDON’S retailers and business owners are invited to a Retail Crime Prevention Meeting, on Wednesday November 29th at 7pm.
The information meeting will be held in the Munster Arms Hotel and is one of a series being held across the West Cork Garda Division, in association with Operation Thor, the Garda National Anti-Crime Strategy.
In total, 11 of these events will be held in towns across West Cork during November designed to increase the cooperation between Gardai and the retail sector, ensuring that the current low levels of crime in the locality extends past the busy approaching Christmas season.
The meeting will be addressed by the West Cork crime prevention officer, Sergeant Ian O’Callaghan, who will discuss burglary prevention, shoplifting, fraud, and cybercrime.
There will be a particular focus on cash handling and cash exposure of businesses in the run-up to the Christmas shopping period.
All aspects of commercial crime will be discussed, and gardaí strongly urge all businesses to make a special effort to attend on the evening.
