This article gives us more information about the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime, and replacing Council Framework Decision 2001/220/JHA. The Victims’ Directive provides for minimum rights, supports and protection for victims of crime regardless of where the crime was committed in the European Union. The rights under the Directive are not conditional upon the residential status of the victim or the victims’ citizenship or nationality.

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.
