Public meeting in The Abbey Community Centre at 8pm on Thursday October 19th.
Clane Community Council is assisting people in Loughanure, Butterstream, Firmount and Ballinagappa to establish a Text Alert scheme for the area. We expect that we will finally have the above scheme set up and running by end of October 2017. A meeting is now arranged to inform you of the mechanics of the system and to accept late entries to the scheme. We will also be able to share the experience of other groups already in motion in the area.
We have ordered 7 Text Alert signs to be erected in locations advised by An Garda Siochana and Kildare County Council.
The Text Alert initiative is organised by Muintir na Tire, and supported by an Garda Siochana, and has been highly successful in combatting crime and in such other ways as finding missing persons, missing animals, and saving health and lives of vulnerable members of the communities. The effectiveness of Text Alert has proven to discourage undesirable activity and communities feel safer in their homes.
The following people are involved in setting up the scheme:
- Oisin O’Shaughnessy 087 6708931 Hon. Treasurer
