February 2018 – Launch of Johnstown Community Alerts
The Johnstown Community web team are delighted to announce the launch of the Johnstown Community Alert website. The aim of this website is to allow community members who witness anti-social behaviour or criminal activity to photograph or video the activity if safe to do so. Those who then browse the images and videos contained on the website can bring any useful information about the parties involved to An Garda Siochana. The people behind this website hope that sharing incidents like this can lead to increased lines of inquiry for An Garda Siochana and hopefully lead to the arrest of the perpetrators with the net result being a quieter and safer community for us all to live in.
The images and videos can come from a range of devices such as cameras, smartphones, tablets, CCTV, and dash cams.
