Josh Frydenberg the Federal Member for Kooyong has today announced a re-elected Turnbull Government will provide $100,000 for closed circuit television cameras (CCTVs) in Kooyong.
The funding has been committed under the Coalition’s $40 million Safer Communities Fund.
Mr Frydenberg said that the CCTVs will be installed in the Kew Junction area.
“The funding will go directly to providing real tools to fight crime in our local community by not only acting as a deterrent against vandalism to small business in the area, but also assisting authorities in identifying those engaged in criminal activity. This important initiative will provide reassurance to local traders and residents,” Mr Frydenberg said.
“This is a great result for our local business community, and particularly local traders at the Kew Traders Association who have played an active role in obtaining this funding,’ Mr Frydenberg said.
The Safer Communities Fund delivers on the Coalition’s ongoing commitment to keep Australians safe and secure.
Only safe communities can be strong and prosperous, and the best way to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour is to prevent it happening.
The Coalition has committed more than $100 million to assist local communities in delivering strategies to address crime and anti-social behaviour and will continue to introduce initiatives that make our streets, communities and our nation safer,” Mr Frydenberg said.
