Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today encouraged eligible local small businesses to apply for a grant through the NSW Government’s Community and Small Business CCTV Fund to help reduce crimes like malicious damage, break and enter and shoplifting.
The fund provides free CCTV packages up to $5,000 to eligible community groups and small businesses in Western and South-Western Sydney including Penrith.
Stuart Ayres said preventing and reducing crime is a priority and this program goes towards protecting businesses and assisting our police to catch and prosecute criminals.
“CCTV cameras send a strong message to would-be criminals that if you do the wrong thing, you will be caught and punished accordingly.”
All CCTV systems through the fund are installed by a pre-qualified CCTV supplier and are registered with the NSW Police.
Applications are open to:
- small businesses with turnover of less than $10 million or less than 20 employees
- incorporated not-for-profit community organisations.
