Gardai in Tramore are asking residents in the town to get involved in the setting up of Neighbourhood Watch schemes.
Currently there are 15 neighbourhood watch and three community alert schemes in place.
Householders are now being surveyed in Tramore to see what interest is there.
Sergeant Mark Mills says the schemes promote the Gardai and Community working together.
He says they have recieved very positive feedback from a number of estates in Tramore so far.
Gardai have identified areas and estates in Tramore which do not have established schemes and a survey is currently underway to see if there is any interest in setting up new ones.
