Increasing CCTV camera coverage in Mortdale

Thursday, 01 April 2021

Georges River Council has again partnered with the NSW State Government to co-fund the installation of additional CCTV cameras in Mortdale.

The additional CCTV is a part of Council’s broader strategy using the principles of crime prevention through an environmental design for a safer community, so that residents and businesses can feel safe and secure.
 
Georges River Mayor, Kevin Greene, said, “this commitment will help improve safety and reduce crime.
 
“It will ultimately help revamp the local night-time economy, which is critical to our LGA’s future, generating more revenue for 16,000 businesses providing approximately 55,000 local jobs.”
 
Mayor Greene said, “the network provides an important eye on the LGA, assuring our community have someone looking out for them at all times.
 
“I would like to thank the Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, for securing a NSW Premier’s Grant of $22,000 towards the installation of CCTV cameras.
 
“I am also proud of Council’s contribution of an additional $16,000 which will see the installation of two additional CCTV cameras along Morts Road, Mortdale.
 
Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, was pleased to note that this jointly funded project will provide a total of four cameras along Morts Road in Mortdale.
 
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community and by reducing localised crime in the area, we are allowing these businesses to do what they do best,” Mr Coure said.
 
“This project showcases the strong relationship between the NSW Government and Georges River Council, as we are getting on with the job and delivering for our community both promptly and appropriately.”
