Promise of up to $200,000 for CCTV cameras in M'boro
THE Fraser Coast Regional Council will be given up to $200,000 to expand its network of closed circuit television cameras in Maryborough if a Coalition Government is elected.
Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss said it would help to prevent crime in Maryborough by increasing the areas covered by CCTV cameras.
"The funding will be provided to install CCTV cameras at the intersections of Kent and Lennox Sts and Kent and Adelaide Sts," he said.
"Residents want to feel safe and secure in their homes and neighbourhoods.
"Whether people are going about their business, shopping, out to dinner with friends or enjoying a night out, CCTV cameras provide an extra layer of security to help protect them and their property from crime.
"The presence of CCTV cameras causes would be criminals to think before they act, helping to stop crime before it occurs, as the chance of them getting caught on camera is high.
