Following a planning process that began in late 2011, the CRS tonight began safety patrols in the area around the River Lagan in Belfast City Centre. This is the first step in an ongoing process to provide assistance to those in difficulty in that area. The CRS Belfast Unit is currently leading the way in providing this service in support of the police and other emergency services with the support of CRS members from around the province.

A training day for the CRS Unit and Assistant Unit Commanders was held in the Dunsilly Hotel in Antrim. The CRS welcomed new members from the Antrim unit and a new addition to the Senior Management Team, Dr Helen Allen. During the morning guest speakers included Chief Superintendent David Moore, PSNI and the family of Job Murphy including Joe (Joby's father), and other family members.
