Following a pilot project, a Text Alert scheme was launched in the Republic of Ireland in September, 2013 by An Garda Síochána (Police Force) with the support of a number of existing community networks including Community Alert, Neighborhood Watch, the Irish Farmers Association and related stakeholders. The scheme provides a further mechanism by which An Garda Síochána can provide crime prevention information to community groups, who in turn will forward this information and advice by text or email to all members of the group in the community.
