Offaly Community Watch Network

This network was established to support Community Alert and Neighbourhood Watch groups. The network is supported by Offaly Public Participation Network, An Garda Siochána and Offaly County Council. The network has put in place a Text Alert system in conjunction with An Garda Siochána where communities receive text alerts on security and safety from a centrally administered text system.

The network has been well supported by groups around the county. Active participation by 74 groups in the network highlights the efforts that individuals go to to take care of people living in their community. To date the network has set up a text alert system and has had speakers address the network across a range of topics including: crime prevention; drug awareness; anti-social behaviour; suicide alertness in the community; supports for older people; community smoke alarm scheme; community CCTV systems and public lighting in Offaly.
