Banjo’s Skate Park at Terrigal, has scored two CCTV cameras in a bid by Central Coast Council to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.
The cameras are two of 21 installed across the region, thanks to a $47,000 grant from the Federal Government under the Safer Communities Fund.
Central Coast Mayor, Jane Smith, said the project was part of an overall strategy to improve the amenity of public spaces.
“The installation of the cameras aims to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour providing assurance to the community in the use of public spaces,” Smith said.
Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, said she was delighted to see the Government’s commitment to keeping the community safe on the Central Coast.
“The installation of an extra 21 CCTV cameras from San Remo to Umina will give residents using these facilities greater peace of mind,” Wicks said.
“I look forward to continuing our investment in doing all we can to help keep our community safe.”
There are more than 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.
