Liz, discussed this and the excitement about the reopening in a couple of weeks time.

Garda Sergeant Graham Kavanagh joins us every month for our monthly crime prevention chat.

This month, Graham, discussed the retail checklist for those businesses that will be reopening following a number of months closure.

Garda Kavanagh gives some really important tips on your premises, the use of alarms, CCTV and also making sure your staff are trained to prevent a crime from happening.
