Garda approved system to go live this autumn
Muff is to get a new text alert system, which will act as an extension of the current Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
The new system will see text messages sent out to recipients alerting them to issues the Garda wishes to highlight.
Tommy Doherty, chair of the Muff Neighbourhood Watch scheme, explained: “We have agreed in principle to implement this scheme although there is still a bit of work to be done.
“Everything is controlled by the gardaí and there are several requirements on us that we are currently looking into.
“We have to erect signs in the area and this has to go through council for planning and the like.
“Also we are not sure who funds this, do we have to raise money or what?”
