CCTV CAMERAS FOR HAWTHORN & CAMBERWELL TO TACKLE CRIME & ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR
A re-elected Coalition Government will provide $200,000 for closed circuit television (CCTVs) cameras in Hawthorn and Camberwell, helping tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the local community.
The cameras will be installed around Burwood Road in Hawthorn and Burke Road in Camberwell.
CCTV cameras not only deter acts of vandalism, but also assist authorities to identify those who engage in criminal activity and take appropriate action.
They provide reassurance for both local small businesses and residents, with local traders from both the Glenferrie Traders Association and Camberwell Traders Association having played an active role in obtaining this funding.
The best way to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour is to prevent it from happening and today’s announcement builds on the $200,000 already delivered for CCTV cameras in Kew and Camberwell.
More than $100 million has been committed through the Safer Communities Fund to assist local communities in delivering strategies that address crime and anti-social behaviour.
The Government will continue to introduce initiatives that make our streets, communities and nation safer. Only safe communities can be strong and prosperous communities.
