Four new CCTV cameras have been installed in Riverwood as part of a federal government program to keep suburban streets safe.
“All locals have the right to feel safe and secure in their community and these new cameras will help achieve that,” Mr Coleman said.Banks MP David Coleman said the cameras would help make Riverwood’s streets safer by helping to prevent, detect and investigate crime.
The camera program will be managed by Hurstville Council, which will be able to provide video footage to NSW Police upon request.
Hurstville mayor Con Hindi welcomed the installation of the CCTV cameras, as did Spot Caffe owner Constance Barberakis.
Ms Barberakis said the cameras would help ensure a safe and friendly environment.
“People come to our cafe to relax and have a break,” she said.
“These new CCTV cameras are very important for the Riverwood shopping area.”
The cameras are in addition to new CCTV cameras in Penshurst, Mortdale and Narwee.
Mr Coleman said he would now focus on securing funding for CCTV cameras in Allawah and Padstow.
