Residents of Ellenbrook and surrounding suburbs will be safer thanks to new infrastructure which will enhance community safety and curb increased instances of anti-social behaviour.
Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, has today announced that a re-elected Morrison Government will invest $100,000 to expand the mobile CCTV network in the Ellenbrook area – an investment which Mr Porter says the community has been calling out for.
“Ellenbrook is one of the fastest growing suburbs in Perth,” Mr Porter said.
“But unfortunately, my office has been inundated with complaints of increased crime and anti-social behaviour throughout our area.
“Well, we have listened, and today the Morrison Government has announced an investment which will serve to stamp out this unwanted behaviour and keep our community safe.”
Recently there has been an increase in reports of crime and anti-social behaviour throughout Ellenbrook. This unwanted trend has become so untenable that it has caused some residents to move out of the suburb – something Mr Porter says is completely unacceptable.
“No one should be made to feel unsafe in their own home,” Mr Porter said.
“Community safety is of paramount importance to me and I want to do everything I can to make sure our community stays safe.
“That’s why this funding is so important to our community.”
Acting Mayor of the City of Swan, Cr Kevin Bailey, welcomed the announcement saying the investment will assist the City in providing high quality surveillance in problem areas around Ellenbrook.
“CCTV not only assists police in identifying and prosecuting offenders, it also acts as deterrent to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour in the first place,” Cr Bailey said.
