FUNDING FOR COMMUNITY PROJECTS TO COMBAT LOCAL CRIME
Written on the 23 January 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Mr Kevin Conolly MP is encouraging local residents, businesses and community groups from across our region to come forward to the NSW Government with solutions to stamp down on local crime and anti-social behaviour.
The NSW Government's Community Safety Fund will invest in projects that address local crime hot spots and promote safe and inclusive use of public space. Community groups, councils, businesses and organisations can apply for grants up to $250,000 for ideas to boost local safety and pride.
"I know many people in our community have innovative ideas of how to make our community a safer place and I encourage them to take up this funding opportunity," said Mr Conolly.
The NSW Liberal Government is committed to reducing crime and making our state a safer place to live.
Minister for Justice and Police Troy Grant said crime is a social and financial burden that the NSW Government is committed to reducing.
"We know there is always more that can be done to stamp out crime in our towns and suburbs and we are working with the community to identify opportunities," Mr Grant said.
Attorney General Gabrielle Upton said the $10 million program over four years has already helped make local crime reduction ideas a reality.
"The NSW Government is proud to partner with the community to prevent crime and address the fear of crime," Ms Upton said.
The Community Safety Fund aims to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour through infrastructure and service delivery projects that address local crime hot spots, anti-social behaviour and promotes safe and inclusive use of public space and collaborative approaches to crime prevention and detection.
