Hurry, Community Safety Fund grants closing soon


Melbourne: The Andrews Labor Government delivered a fresh injection of $5.8 million to continue community crime prevention grants, while a review of the Government’s crime prevention initiatives is being undertaken by the Parliamentary Secretary for Justice.

The new money will support the following grant programs: The Community Safety Fund – grants of up to $10,000 for community groups and councils for practical crime prevention projects; Public Safety Infrastructure Fund – larger grants of up to $250,000 for councils to use urban design and technology such as CCTV and lighting to improve safety in public places; Graffiti Prevention Grants – grants of up to $25,000 for councils to partner with their local communities to prevent graffiti vandalis; New place-based grants for crime hotspots – piloting new grants for places of high crime and disadvantage, with an emphasis on projects involving youth, Koori and culturally and linguistically diverse groups.

The Community Crime Prevention website contains a database of funded projects that enables you to generate reports by local government area and grant type.
Further information, including examples of previously funded projects and other resources to support applicants, is available on the Community Crime Prevention website at www.crimeprevention.vic.gov.au (TIW)

    The safety tips privedod in the article are awesome .I heard about eClick, a personal GPS security devise from Securus, Inc. eClick protects students and college campus staff in emergency situations. This GPS personal security system is designed to provide extra level of security for college/school students, faculty and staff, both on and off campus. Student can activate it by pressing the alert button for 3 seconds. The Campus police & college administration will receive instant alert about the student who is in crisis and rush for help. If you are away from campus and need assistance, campus police will alert local police in your area to find you, so you are never out of range.
