EXPECT to see extra Gardaí out and about today as it has been earmarked as a “high visibility district wide day of action”.

Clare Gardaí are planning to place extra emphasis on a number of areas including warrant execution and intelligence gathering.

They plan to carry out random firearm checks of licensed holders and put extra check points in place.

They also want to encourage people to embrace the “Lock up and Light Up” campaign.

“When not at home please ensure all doors and windows are locked. Especially during the hours of darkness to turn on some lights or use timer switches. Keep keys away from being easily reached and accessed through the letter box. Do not store large sums of money and secure away valuable items of jewelry,” a Garda spokesperson said.
