Neighbourhood Watch and Text Alert in the Ashford and District area.
An Garda Síochána and Ashford Development Association have arranged a PUBLIC MEETING in order to set up the neighbourhood watch/text alert system within our community.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday 24th October 2017 @ 8pm in the Community & Heritage Centre, Ashford. The whole community is invited to attend.
What is Neighbourhood Watch?
Neighbourhood Watch is a crime prevention and community safety programme. It operates as a partnership between An Garda Síochána and the public. It works on the basis that every member of a community can help to improve the quality of life in the area by keeping a look out for neighbours and reporting suspicious activities to the Gardaí.
The scheme may be set up in response to community demand or as a result of Garda contact. A Garda officer will outline what has to be done at the public meeting.
What are some of the aims of Neighbourhood Watch?
- To improve community safety
- To prevent crime
- To develop Garda and community links
- To increase public confidence in An Garda Síochána
- To foster a caring environment for older and vulnerable people
- To reduce anti-social behaviour, including graffiti and harassment
Neighbourhood Watch will only succeed with active input from all members. Your actions and support will help to make it work. Don’t leave it to others – play a part in any way you can.
