Attorney General signs off on first funds for Casino CCTV
THE Casino CBD is one step closer to gaining its closed circuit TV cameras, thanks to the Attorney General signing off on the first instalment of funding last week.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan, who promised the cameras prior to being elected last year, is pleased with the result.
"I am proud to have delivered this important project for the people of Casino," he said.
"This promise was central to my campaign because we should always be able to walk our streets in safety, particularly our older residents."
