Cam­eras to cut crime

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

THE City of Belmont will re­ceive $45,640 for the in­stal­la­tion of four CCTV Cam­eras at a key in­dus­trial precinct on Aber­nathy Road in Cloverdale.

Swan MP Steve Irons said the fund­ing had been al­lo­cated from the sec­ond round of the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Safer Streets pro­gram.

Mr Irons said the cam­eras would help pre­vent theft and as­sist po­lice in find­ing and prose­cut­ing those who chose to steal from this lo­cal in­dus­trial area.

“These CCTV cam­eras will add to the 27 cam­eras around Belmont Fo­rum and Vil­lage Cen­tre which were in­stalled with fund­ing from round one of the Safer Streets Pro­gram,” Mr Irons said.

Fed­eral Jus­tice Min­is­ter Michael Keenan, who vis­ited Cloverdale last week, said the fund­ing was drawn from the Pro­ceeds of Crime Ac­count.

“That is money taken from crim­i­nals and rein­vested into pre­ven­tion of fur­ther crime,” Mr Keenan said.

“The Coali­tion will con­tinue to rein­vest money con­fis­cated from crim­i­nals and put it to­wards projects that make our streets and com­mu­ni­ties safer.”
