"Determined" burglars operating in Donegal 20.09.17

GARDAÍ have issued a warning to local business owners to tighten up security after a spate of "determined" attacks by burglars around Donegal in recent nights.
People are advised to ‘target harden’ their premises to withstand "robust criminal attack".
Divisional crime prevention officer Sergeant Paul Wallace said: "Commercial premises in various parts of the county have been the target of criminals on recent nights. These people are well-equipped and are very determined to gain access to properties so it follows that business persons are requested to review their security arrangements and take steps where necessary."
Sgt Wallace outlined a list of 'basic' deterrents including intruder alarm systems installed by established operators; a back-up signalling facility to cover the event of a telephone line outage; CCTV systems installed by "competent registered persons" with hard drives secured with a back up facility.
Meanwhile, he said roof and attic spaces should also have alarms and wire screening to prevent physical access while roller shutters must be properly secured. Other protections include vigilant staff members, good lighting, securely mounted, time-locked safes and good perimeter fencing.
