Inviting Local Authorities to apply for the funding the Minister said:

The scheme is currently open and I encourage all local authorities to develop proposals for schemes in their areas in partnership with local community interests.

I also encourage interested community groups to engage with their Local Authority to highlight needs for schemes in their areas.

Grants of over €950,000 have been approved to date for 35 local CCTV schemes and the new wave of funding underlines my Department’s commitment to work with Local Authorities to promote community safety. It’s a top priority for this Government.

Everyone has the right to feel safe and be safe in their communities.

The CCTV scheme has been reformed to give Local Authorities the lead role and to allow community groups to request local authorities to consider schemes in their area.

Funding is now available to cover not only new CCTV systems but to allow funding applications to extend or upgrade existing CCTV schemes which are incomplete or obsolete.

Local Authorities can now also seek a once-off grant of up to €5,000 for minor maintenance costs.

The Department is now open to applications from Local Authorities for funding.
