Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald has announced that the funding for the Community Alert Programme has been doubled to €350,000 and now incorporates a new €100,000 rebate scheme for local groups registered under the Garda Text Alert Scheme.

The Fine Gael TD said that Text Alert Groups are a great crime prevention initiative and are wonderful example of people working with their local Gardai to protect and support their community.

He added that he would encourage Text Alert groups here in Kerry to apply to Muintir na Tire for the rebate as soon as possible and at the latest by the end of October 2016.
