As Chairperson of Leitrim Joint Policing Committee, I met with members of Youth Work Ireland North Connaught and members of An Garda Síochána today, for the launch of the (Youth Action Project) YAPS Garda Diversion Project “Get the facts about Knives! – Fact or Fiction” leaflet.
Launching the project, Chief Supt. Glackin, said the leaflet will inform, dispel the myths and present the facts, It’s an offence to carry a knife in a public place and young people need to be aware of the facts. We should also ask our youth to be aware of their own safety when out, encourage respect and remind them that all crime or intimidation should be reported.
