A boost to the Derwent Valley’s CCTV network will help fight vandalism and break-ins across the region, with a re-elected Coalition Government providing $210,000 for new cameras across the municipality.
Liberal Candidate for Lyons, Susie Bower said the funding would help to keep local businesses and local residents in the Derwent Valley safe.
“The Liberal Government’s $210,000 commitment will fund the set-up of additional cameras across the Derwent Valley Council network, including in New Norfolk, Lachlan and Westerway,” Ms Bower said.
“Local business owners, residents and community groups shouldn’t have to tolerate vandalism and criminal activity where they live and work.
“CCTV systems act as a deterrent for anti-social behaviour, and are a useful tool to track down offenders.
“Our local police do a fantastic job, but they can’t be everywhere during every minute of the day, so these additional cameras will assist to identify offenders.”
Only the Coalition Government has a plan to continue delivering a strong economy and a stronger future for the residents of the Derwent Valley.
