Playing it safe

Central Coast Council, New South Wales, has recently installed an additional 21 CCTV cameras at community facilities in Umina, Woy Woy, San Remo and Terrigal to enhance community safety within neighbourhoods, public spaces and places.

Council received $47,000 from the Federal Government under the Safer Communities Fund towards this project.

Mayor, Jane Smith, said the project was part of an overall strategy to improve the amenity of public spaces. .

“The installation of 11 new CCTV is aimed to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour providing assurance to the community in the use of public spaces.”

There are over 800 CCTV cameras covering the Central Coast, which have been funded through a combination of grants received from the Federal Government and Council’s operating budget.
