Small businesses and community groups in Penrith will be able to take advantage of funding to install CCTV cameras to make our streets even safer, under a program to be delivered by the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government.

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith welcomed the announcement of $5 million over four years to implement the program, which will commence in Western and South‑Western Sydney, with small businesses and community groups in the Penrith local government areas to be among the first to be eligible to participate.

“This is great news and a real step forward in the fight against crime and anti-social behavior in our community,” Stuart Ayres said.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the investment reinforces that community safety is the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s top priority.

“More CCTV cameras will increase community confidence and send a strong message to would-be criminals that if you do the wrong thing, you will be caught and punished,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Police Minister Troy Grant said the program will continue the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s strong record of investment in local community safety initiatives, including the Government’s commitment to deliver 1500 new police to put more cops on the beat.

“CCTV camera footage can be a vital source of information for NSW Police when gathering intelligence and investigating criminal activity, and acts as a deterrent to criminals, reducing the likelihood of crime,” Mr Grant said.

Stuart Ayres said the program will deliver funds directly to local small businesses and community groups.

“This will empower our community to make our local streets even safer,” Stuart Ayres said.

Eligible community groups and small businesses will be able to apply for up to $5000 in funding, and will have their applications assessed by officials from the NSW Police Force and the NSW Department of Justice, from April 2019.
