A Coalition Government will help make Jimboomba and Flagstone safer, with a commitment to provide $300,000 for 5 CCTV infrastructures.
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz has secured double the funding he promised in April this year and has confirmed there will be 4 CCTV camera’s supplied and installed in the Jimboomba CBD and 1 at a crime hotspot on the corner of Teviot Road and Homestead Road, Flagstone.
“This is a big win for our community. It will improve safety and mean practical, positive benefits for residents and business owners in Jimboomba and Flagstone. Increasing vandalism and crime should not be tolerated and CCTV is a preventative measure that also helps police identify and catch offenders.”
“I pledged to deliver $150, 000 of federal funding for this project in April. I’m over the moon to receive double that commitment because crime has been a big issue in the Logan Country Area and a lot of the local businesses and the community have been affected”, Mr Buchholz said.
Mr Buchholz acknowledged the strong community campaign for CCTV headed by the Logan Country Safe City Group and also the support of Logan City Council in administering it.
“The Coalition is pleased to support the efforts of local residents and our Council to make a real difference and respond to community concerns. That is what good government is all about.”
“The Coalition has a strong record on crime and wants to help make our streets, homes and communities safer with tough and effective measures like CCTV that help assist the fight against crime,” Mr Buchholz said.
