The text alert scheme is now up and running in the parish for the past four weeks. Already, there has been reason to send out various texts relating to suspicious
activity. All of this information was relayed to all the contributors signed up, as well as being sent directly to the Gardai. The committee would like to thank
everyone who has rang or texted the community phone with the information, and we urge that anyone who becomes aware of vehicles and their passengers that may be out of the ordinary or might appear suspicious, to act immediately by contacting the community phone .The more information that comes into the community phone, the better chance the Gardai have of thwarting any potential criminal activity. Remember, when supplying any information, please try and have as much detail as possible, i.e. type and colour of vehicle, full registration number and amount of passengers, and location. All information is given and supplied in full confidence.

The committee are also offering the opportunity to any farmers, businesses or householders the chance to purchase “text alert” polyboard signs for their own use to
erect on their properties. If you are interested please contact any committee member in your area or phone the Community Alert phone by next week.
