A meeting of those interested in adding their names to the neighbourhood watch and text alert system in Manorcunningham and surrounding areas takes place tonight.
Already between 300 and 400 people have signed up to the scheme.
A meeting of volunteers will take place tonight in the Manor Resource Centre at 8pm.
Vancessa Clark of Muintir na Tire will give a talk and help organise the groups going forward.
One of the organisers, Tony Monring, said the people of the area continue to take a stand against thugs who terrorised local people in their homes in recent months.
“Every person counts. The community has stood together and continues to do so.
“The more people that join this programme, the safer a place our community will be to live in.
“It’s our duty to look after our elderly relatives and friends,” he said.
