The National Rural Safety Forum was established, following stakeholder consultation between An Garda Síochána and key partners such as the Irish Farmers Association (IFA) and Muintir na Tire, to provide a platform for a collaborative partnership approach to support the delivery of a rural community policing service. The Forum held its inaugural meeting on 17th April 2019.
The Forum includes partners such as Active Retirement Ireland, Age Friendly Ireland, Neighbourhood Watch, Foroige, ESB Networks, the Irish Country Women’s Association and the GAA.
The forum has four key objectives; Community Reassurance, Information Sharing & Communication Network, Increased Community Engagement and Crime Prevention & Crime Opportunity Reduction.
National Community Engagement Day is kindly supported by members of CSNA (Convenience Stores & Newsagents Association) and RGDATA (Retail Grocery Dairy & Allied Trade Association) nationally.
