$1.5 million to extend CCTV and improve safety lighting

 

Tenants have been asking for additional security for years. Public housing tenants want to feel safe in their own homes.

 

A Liberal Nationals Government will provide $1.5 million to extend the CCTV network, improve safety lighting and make other security infrastructure improvements at and around the Albert Park and South Melbourne public housing estates.

CCTV programs have been widely successful in improving residents' feelings of safety and security as well as assisting Victoria Police in responding to crime. We will work with the Council, Victoria Police and public housing tenants and housing providers towards identifying specific projects and locations.

Crime in Albert Park has increased overall by 15.3 per cent and serious assault has increased by 50 percent. Further to this, there has been a 137.5% increase in drug possession.
