$200,000 for CCTV's in Macleay
The CBDs of Kempsey, South West Rocks and Crescent Head will get CCTV following a NSW Government grant of more than $208,000.
The funds have been granted through the NSW Community Safety Fund and the CCTVs will be delivered by the Macleay Valley Business Chamber.
Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey, said the grant will help manage crime and anti-social behaviour.
“This investment will be welcomed by the community and I congratulate both the Business Chamber and Kempsey Shire Council for securing the grant,” Mrs Pavey said.
On behalf of the Macleay Valley Business Chamber, President Gary Scott, welcomes the installation of the cameras.
“Our community already works well with each other and local law enforcement agencies to promote a safer community, and the CCTV cameras will help us further drive down the incidences of anti-social behaviour.”
Kempsey Shire Council Mayor, Liz Campbell said this is another great outcome for our Macleay communities.
“Having the Chamber, Council and Governments working together is another step towards improving the safety of our community,” said Mrs Campbell.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Justice and Police Troy Grant said the NSW Government’s Community Safety Fund will deliver $10 million in grants over four years.
“The NSW Government is investing in evidence-based projects to promote safety and steer at-risk people away from a path of crime,” Mr Grant said.
“Crime has a significant cost to our communities, so supporting projects that reduce anti-social behaviour and offending is a good investment.”
