New crime prevention app launched in Monaghan

A new text alert scheme will launch in Monaghan this evening providing a more functioning platform for crime prevention in the county.

Monaghan County Council are amalgamating all County Wide Text Alerts, so that we get better coverage of all areas through the ‘Komeer’ app.

Users can download the Komeer app onto their smartphone and sign up to Monaghan
County Council or County Monaghan text alerts as well as their own towns and villages.

1500 people have already signed up across the county.

Carol Lambe from Monaghan County Council said the app has already proved a success helping recover a stolen van recently

Secretary of the Tydavnet text alert scheme, Councillor Cathy Bennett, urged residents to sign up
