  • Crime Prevention

    On this month's Crime Prevention segment, Sergeant Kelvin Courtney spoke about An Garda Síochána's new Anti-Assault Campaign which is aimed at young men between the ages of 18-39.

    According to the Garda Analysis Service, the vast majority of assaults are carried out by males aged between 18 and 39 against males of a similar age, and typically take place in and around public places (street, roads, pubs and hotels) between 8pm and 5am at the weekend. Perpetrators of assaults tend not to repeat the crime and there is a very low level of repeat victimisation.
    Rosie Dolan spoke to Crimecall about the death of her 20 year old son Andrew, who tragically died after an unprovoked assault in Mullingar 2011.
