Community Alert

There will be a very important Community Alert meeting on this Thursday 20th July in the Social Club at 8.30pm. This meeting is to discuss the possibility of getting CCTV in the parish. In the last few weeks we’ve had property stolen on at least four different occasions and I know that some incidents have not been reported so the number of incidents in the parish is a lot higher than what we are aware of. It is important that people report any illegal activity, no matter how small, to the Gardaí. Some of the stolen property was recovered and this was due to people being vigilant and taking notice of items ‘showing up’ and people taking note of the text communications they get on an almost daily basis. Crime within the parish seems to be on the up and we need to pull together to combat this. The Garda Text Alert fee of €10 is also due to be paid. This text is sent directly to each individual in the group from the Garda Text Alert Scheme. It is hoped that every household is represented at the meeting. The meeting will be attended by crime prevention officer Sgt Dan Murphy and Kilbrin liaison Garda Michael Mackessy.
