“The central role of An Garda Síochána is to protect the community, and ensure people are allowed to live peacefully. I am particularly pleased, therefore, to introduce this community based initiative at the National Ploughing Championships – a family orientated event that has resonance for local communities nationwide.

Indeed, the efficiency of the ‘text alert’ system would not have possible without the co-operation of our partners in the IFA, Neighbourhood Watch and Muintir na Tire. The emphasis of the this initiative is on preventing crime through active partnerships with communities, and it is with the continued assistance of communities nationwide that we can all continue to combat crime."
