The Morrison Government will make a further investment to expand the CCTV security camera network throughout the Casey electorate.

$120,000 of federal funding has been provided for CCTV security cameras in Warburton, $149,000 for a network in Upwey and $115,000 for Wandin North.

The cameras have been funded as part of the third round of the Coalition Government’s Safer Communities Fund and will join six new networks that were delivered throughout 2018 in Belgrave, Monbulk, Mooroolbark, Mt Evelyn, Woori Yallock and Yarra Glen as well as the three other federally funded networks operating in Healesville, Lilydale and Yarra Junction.

Due to the success of previous rounds of the Safer Communities Fund, the Coalition Government has announced a third round making available an additional $30 million in funding to boost public safety and security.

The full $30 million comes from assets confiscated by the Commonwealth as proceeds of crime, meaning the program will be fully funded by money that was once destined to line the pockets of our most serious criminals.
