CCTV COMES TO BEACHSIDE SUBURBS

Slide in crime rates predicted
RESIDENTS of Terrigal and Copacabana can rest a little easier, with the recent installation of 19 new CCTV cameras in the popular beachside sburbs.

The 13 CCTV cameras in Terrigal and six in Copacabana were jointly funded by a $550,000 grant under round two of the Federal Government’s Safer Streets Program and $90,000 from Central Coast Council’s operating budget.

Cameras in Terrigal are located on Terrigal Drive, Kurrawyba Avenue, The Scenic Highway, Ash Street, Terrigal Haven and The Skillion.
 
Cameras at Copacabana are located in Del Monte Place, Pampas Avenue, Copacabana Skate Park and Captain Cook Lookout. 

Mayor Jane Smith said cameras had already been successfully introduced at Kariong, Kincumber, Gosford and on the peninsula.
 
“We are grateful for the financial assistance we have received through the Safer Streets Program and expect the cameras will impact positively on the safety of our local communities,” Cr Smith said.
 
Statistics sourced from NSW Police indicate that over the last 10 years (2006-2016) in Gosford CBD alone, personal crime in streets with CCTV installed decreased by fifty percent.
