Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon’s Policing and Community Safety Partnership (ABC PCSP) has set up a Park Watch scheme in Clare Glen.
Park Watch is similar to Neighbourhood Watch, with the PCSP and the PSNI working together with park users and local residents to protect the park from vandalism and antisocial behaviour.
Chair of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership, councillor Thomas Larkham commented: “It is important that everyone looks after Clare Glen, not just the PCSP and the PSNI.
“We want to encourage local residents and park users to take pride in it, look after it and protect it from
vandalism and anti-social behaviour.
“By doing so they will not only be improving the safety and security of the park but also the surrounding area.”
Sergeant Gwyneth Buchanan, Armagh Neighbourhood Policing Team commented: “Situated on the banks of the Cusher River, this is a great facility for the public and we are committed to working with the Policing and Community Safety Partnership and the local community to make this a safe space for everyone.
“We want to encourage park users and residents to help us protect the park from vandalism and antisocial behaviour by reporting any criminal or suspicious activity at the earliest opportunity.”
