Members may recall an initiative spearheaded by the IFA and GAA two years ago that enabled hundreds of meetings with the local Community Gardai throughout the country.
The purpose of these meetings was to introduce the Garda to the community and for locals to get an opportunity to listen to a number of practical advices on safety and security.
Many of these meetings were held in the local shop, the local community hall or the GAA clubhouse.
The organisers, the National Rural Safety Forum, have asked CSNA to extend an invitation to all of its members throughout the country to consider making their store a venue for an hour on Wednesday April 27th to enable a “getting to know your local Garda” event.
An Garda Siochana are aiming for 500 locations nationwide.
A number of items have been given for distribution on the day, (high vis jackets, pens, books, farm safety leaflets, arm bands, beanie hats and bicycle reflectors etc).
