They said there is now a ‘legitimate threat’ to her home and told her to take precautions to protect herself.

Gardai told Jan from Clare Hall in Co Dublin to immediately buy two fire extinguishers and for her 21-year-old son to move out of the house.a person holding a knife: Woman offered no support as criminals mistakenly target her address as the home of a prison guard.

She was also advised to change her routes to work in case of kidnapping, block her letterbox, install alarms and external lights as well purchase extra smoke alarms and cut down the hedges that surround the front garden.

Jan, who is a nurse, has been informed that she will have to pay for all of these extra facets herself.

‘I asked for funding or assistance or some way of paying for all of these things and I was told there was none available,’ she said to RTÉ’s Liveline.Gardai told Jan from Clare Hall in Co Dublin to immediately buy two fire extinguishers and for her 21-year-old son to move out of the house.

She told Joe Duffy that her son has suffered a back injury and would not be able to move out.

Since she was informed of this threat two weeks ago, Jan said that she hasn’t been able to sleep.

‘I’m actually starting to feel sick from lack of sleep. But how can you sleep with that threat?‘I’m actually starting to feel sick from lack of sleep.

‘I am thinking every night that this darkness is going to visit my house.’

She said that by the time Friday comes around, she is ‘on her knees again’ from exhaustion.

While a number of people called into the radio show to offer the services, Jan was incredibly grateful but insisted there should be a protocol in place to protect citizens.a bag of luggage: While a number of people called into the radio show to offer the services, Jan was incredibly grateful but insisted there should be a protocol in place to protect citizens.

‘I’m just really annoyed, these people are ringing into you and being so kind but I shouldn’t have had to do this. I should have been offered this help without having to go to your councillor or talk you Joe,’ she said.

‘There should have been protocol in place to keep citizens safe especially when they’re put under this threat.’
