STREET CAMERAS FOR MOSSMAN
DOUGLAS Shire residents and businesses will welcome greater community safety and crime prevention when new CCTV cameras and lighting are installed in central Mossman, says Leichhardt MP Warren Entsch.
Mr Entsch and the Minister for Justice, Michael Keenan, have today announced that the funding agreement with Douglas Shire Council for the CCTV community safety project in Mossman has been executed and the project is ready to go ahead.
Mr Entsch said Council will receive $34,271 under Safer Streets Round Two to install two CCTV cameras on the exterior of Mossman Library and Mossman Shire Hall on Mill Street to provide coverage of the Mill Street donation bins and Pinjarra Place.
Two light poles and lights and three additional CCTV cameras will be installed at George Davis Park..
“This is a great project that Douglas Shire Council has put forward and I congratulate them for being successful under the Safer Streets program,” Mr Entsch said.
“The lights and CCTV will help people feel safer as they go about their business, reduce criminal activity and anti-social behaviour and help police catch those responsible for crime in the community.
“It’s also about building local pride and ownership of George Davis Park and the Mill Street area – both of which are important community hubs and areas that families visit daily.”
