A crime prevention seminar held in São Brás de Alportel on February 13 proved popular, with more than 80 people attending.
Following the presentation, there was a panel discussion dealing with crime prevention topics such as the Safe Residence Programme (SRP), reporting crime and suspicious activities and crime patterns.
