SEE Something, Say Something, a new public service initiative for Tralee has been launched by Tralee Chamber Alliance in partnership with An Garda Síochána.

The project, the first of its kind in Ireland, is for members of the public who ‘see something’ that might need Garda intervention, to ‘say something’ by texting TRALEE and the incident details to 50555.

The free text message will be received by the sergeant on duty and it will be acted upon immediately by local Gardaí.

The Managing Consultant for Tralee Chamber Alliance, Ken Tobin, said: “The findings of our recent brand-development survey confirmed that we all love Tralee and we are proud to live and work in Tralee. But sometimes, as is the case in every town in the world, there could be a small element who affect how we enjoy it. We want to send out a message that we won’t tolerate anything that impacts on our quality of life. So if you See Something, Say Something, text TRALEE and the incident details to 50555. Rather than assuming that someone else will report it, take out your phone, describe what you see and text the details for FREE to 50555.”

Tralee Chamber Alliance has been working with ZinMobi, a Tralee-based technology company, who have generously sponsored the development and delivery of the See Something, Say Something campaign.

The Managing Director at Zinmobi and Text Republic, Brian Stephenson, said: “ZinMobi & Text Republic are delighted to be sponsoring the See Something, Say Something campaign in Tralee. The technology we’ve built for this initiative uses text messaging which is ideal as it works on all phones and it’s a technology that everyone is very familiar with. We designed this system with the goal of making it simple, user-friendly and effective while ensuring the anonymity of the person making the report.”
