COMMUNITY ALERT:Castlepollard Area Community Alert, which covers an area of approximately a five mile radius of Castlepollard and which joins other community alert areas in some places, have launched a Community Text Alert System. This system to which householders and businesses can subscribe to for 5 euro will send important community alert updates to your mobile phone. If you see something or someone suspicious in your area or there has been a break-in, you can text the information to the Community Text Alert Central Unit and it will be texted to every other subscriber. The 5 euro registration fee will be used to fund the Community Test Alert, posters, and the information cards with the local Garda and the Garda 24 hour car contact numbers. The Community Alert committee are hoping that someone with some free time will help man the Text Alert Information Centre. For more information on this contact Pat Davitt or Marius Reilly. Anyone wishing to register with the Text Alert can do so at Lakeland Interiors, Hotel Castlepollard or Castlepollard Garda Station. The Community Alert Group are currently testing different types of CCTV camers in the area with a view to having them erected in various placesa around the town. This is another way for Castlepollard Community to “Be Aware Be Alert”.
