Local Gardaí in Donegal have moved to reassure members of the public of their continued commitment during the designation of County Donegal at the increased Level 4 Restrictions in respect of Covid 19 Restrictions.
Sectors of the community are feeling the effects of social isolation and lack of interaction on a daily basis with their family friends, neighbours and the general community.
Sgt Paul Wallace Divisional Crime Prevention / Community Relations Officer for An Garda Siochana in Donegal said Gardaí remain on duty in the county on a 24 hour / 7 day basis.
“People in the community whilst complying with the level 4 restrictions can telephone or look out for older, vulnerable and isolated persons.
‘Remember the criminals are still about the nights are getting longer and our communities are in need of support during these difficult times’. ‘ The established network of Community Alert / Text Alert Neighbourhood watch schemes were never more important for community support and reassurance than at present’he added.
