As discussed in a recent Rural Crime and Security in the Community subcommittee meeting, a Community Text Alert would be a great addition to the community. This system would help spread awareness throughout the community and is already implemented by many surrounding parishes.
The Community Text Alert system is a community-based crime prevention, care and safety programme for rural communities. The programme aims to improve the quality of life in rural communities through reducing opportunities for crimes to occur, encouraging neighbourliness and self-reliance and also promoting accident prevention and personal safety. If you are part of the community text alert system you will receive a text message with information related to incidents in your area.
Currently we are looking to find out how interested those in the community would be in such a system. If you could please click Yes or No in the form below it would be a great indication to the subcommittee on how popular this concept is. Thank you.
