TEXTING TOWARDS A SAFER COMMUNITY IN ANGLESBORO
Anglesboro in south Limerick has all the benefits of rural living and the closely knit nature of inhabitants ensures people look out for each other. Occasionally there’s an incident that disrupts the peace but thankfully such cases are rare.
In a prudent and sensible move, locals are embracing the phenomenon of texting, to keep themselves and their neighbours safer and more secure.
The village and its environs has enthusiastically embraced a community text alert service that ‘alerts’ and ‘informs’ a network of individuals about the movements/actions of undesirable visitors - the service also has the potential to be a vital crime fighting tool for members of An Garda Siochana, whose structure and organisation is being radically overhauled.
