New text alert scheme to be launched in April

A new text alert scheme will launch on the 1st of April providing a more functioning platform for crime prevention in the county.

The project will be rolled out and is free to use.

Users download the Komeer app onto their smartphone and sign up to Monaghan
County Council or County Monaghan text alerts.

The new alert is a free service and removes the heavy administrative duties
such as typing each phone number individually.

Councillor Cathy Bennett urged residents to sign up, while welcoming the community
and authorities working together to make the county a better and safer place
to live.
