Due to the continuous
increasing use of technology, Donegal Joint Policing Committee are holding a Cyber Awareness Week from 5th to 12th October 2021 to highlight the steps people need to take to stay safe and secure online.

Donegal JPC aim to provide information and resources to guide people on Cyber Awareness and to remind everyone of the role everybody plays in online safety and security. 
Cllr Gerry McMonagle, Chairperson of the JPC, said that, “every one of us has an ever expanding digital footprint across a range of devices and accounts, at home, at work or at school. The consequences of not being cyber aware can have a detrimental impact on our finances, our security, our mental health and the lives of others.”

John McLaughlin, Donegal County Council Chief Executive, stated that “Donegal JPC Cyber Awareness Week is a wonderful example of how the three pillars of partnership - Elected Representatives, local communities and An Garda Siochana -  working together can help to tackle a growing problem facing all of the people of the County through the provision of support, information and advice."  

Finally, Chief Superintendent Terry McGinn, Divisional Officer for the Donegal Division added that, “An Garda Síochána are happy to work with our partners in the Donegal JPC on this initiative”.
