Security grants announced for community groups

johnboy 22 December 2010

Simon Corbell has announced grants to help community organisations improve their physical security:

“I am pleased to announce that thirty community organisations around the Act will benefit in the latest round of the Government’s ‘Improving Safety and Security Grants Program’,” Mr Corbell said.

“The Government has made $150,000 available for community organisations to purchase infrastructure and equipment to improve the safety and security of their facilities,” Mr Corbell said.

“This program is designed to boost the capacity of community organisations to respond to property crime such as burglary and property damage.

“The grant assists in providing a minimum standard of security for those organisations whose choices may otherwise be limited by the cost of security hardware.”
