As part of its advocacy campaign for this CCTV network, the local Healesville business community has agreed to assume responsibility for system maintenance. And for my part, I have fought for this pledge to be part of my local plan for a stronger and safer Healesville.
Healesville Chamber of Commerce President, Graham Taylor, welcomed the initiative and said the cameras would make Healesville a safer township.
“Cameras have been proven to slash crime rates in other towns, and gives Police automatic recording of any incident that does occur. This will make Healesville a safer place for residents and tourist visitors, and will give confidence to local businesses. We are a big town, with some great projects like the tourist railway coming up, and we want everyone to feel safe in our town.”
Our policy for Safer Streets Communities Grants is part of the Coalition’s Real Solutions Plan to build a stronger Australia and a better future – for all Australians
