Make your community a safer place

  • For your neighbour
  • For your children
  • For older people
  • For vulnerable people
  • For you, Your Family
  • And your home

Community Alert is a community programme organised by voluntary groups in association with Muintir na TIre and An Garda Síochána.


What can you do?

  • Get to know your neighbours, particularly those living alone and be a good neighbour to them. Call in and visit, run an errand – it’s the small things and the human contact that count.
  • Be Alert – if you see somebody or a vehicle acting suspiciously in your area, call the Gardaí.
  • Keep an eye on your property and that of your neighbours – help to prevent vandalism and theft.
  • Be aware of other safety initiatives.

Your community needs you – play your part.

What else can you Do?

Get involved!

  • If you live in a Community Alert Area, make contact with your local Garda or committee member and find out how you can help.
  • If you have no Community Alert Group in your area, why not start one – contact your local Garda or the Muintir na Tire Community Alert Development Officer.

Be Active, Be Alert, Be Involved

  • Community Alert is about creating and maintaining a caring community.
  • Community Alert aims to allay fear and reduce feelings of isolation.
  • Community Alert is about partnership with you and the other voluntary agencies in your community.

For further information, advice and service please contact: email: [email protected]

or contact your local Garda Station.

In case of emergency dial 999 or 112.
