Community Alert

Gardaí ask you to be highly vigilant at this present time and keep an eye out for any suspicious vehicles around the area. A large number of dog thefts have been reported throughout the country recently.

Gardaí are aware this is making dog owners feel unsafe and worried about their beloved pets. They advise you take extra precautions for their safety and report any movements of persons unknown to you to them.

They ask you try and get a photo or Reg number to assist them in their investigations. The Streete Watch message is clear. “Prompt communication is the key weapon in the fight against crime”.

Streete Watch in partnership with an Gardaí Siochana aims to help the people of Streete parish and surrounding Districts to protect their homes, businesses and our community against burglary, fraud and anti-social behaviour.
