Crime Prevention Grants to support a safer Victoria

Grants of up to $10,000 are now available to help Melbourne’s northern suburbs tackle local crime as part of the State Government’s $19.4 million investment in the Community Crime Prevention Program. Labor MPs Danielle Green, Lily D’Ambrosio and Bronwyn Halfpenny today announced that applications were now open for the latest round of Community Safety Fund grants and encouraged council and community groups to apply. The grants provide funding for councils and not-for-profit community groups to deliver projects that help prevent crime and support people to feel safer and more engaged in their communities. Projects that may be funded under the Community Safety Fund grants include: New security equipment and infrastructure (locks, vandal-proof security lighting, security screens, alarms, fencing and gates) Small-scale, physical improvements and upgrades to public spaces such as streetscapes, parks and reserves to improve community use of these areas. Education and awareness initiatives to help prevent motor vehicle and personal property theft and residential and retail burglaries. Ms Green said since July 2015, the government has provided more than $1.6 million in CSF grants to help support local crime prevention projects across Victoria. “Communities across the northern suburbs understand the local issues that matter and I encourage council and community groups in the area to apply for the latest round of grants,” Ms Green said. Ms Halfpenny said the Community Safety Fund grants allows councils and community groups to harness local knowledge and deliver small projects that will make a big difference. “By delivering local initiatives that help stop crime before it happens, we are continuing to build a safer community in the north,” Ms Halfpenny said. Ms D’Ambrosio said the Community Safety Fund grants were a part of the Andrews Government’s record investment in community safety. “The Andrews Labor Government is investing nearly $2 billion to fight family violence and is rolling out over 3000 more frontline police officers over the next 5 years. The Whittlesea area’s first 45 new frontline police officers start in June” Ms D’Ambrosio said. Applications for the latest round are now open and close at 4.00pm on Friday the 14th of July 2017. For further information about the grants, including guidelines for applicants, please visit www.crimeprevention.vic.gov.au.   Media contact Brian O’Connor 9432-9782.

HONOURING THE SERVICE AND SACRIFICE OF DIAMOND VALLEY VETERANS

The Andrews Labor Government is giving the Diamond Valley community a new opportunity to honour and commemorate the service of their veterans. Local MPs, Vicki Ward and Danielle Green today announced a $6800 grant to upgrade the Diamond Creek War Memorial. The restoration will replace the existing wooden bollards with metal bollards and chains around the obelisk to protect the memorial from damage. There are more than 1,200 war memorials across Victoria, and many more honour rolls. Of the 325 Avenues of Honour planted since World War I, approximately 50 remain – but many are either overgrown or in need of repair. So many Victorians have a connection with our wartime history, and we’re helping deliver the projects or commemorative activities that pay tribute to the wars that shaped our nation. The funding is part of the Labor Government’s Restoring Community War Memorials and Avenues of Honour Grants Program, which is helping communities across Victoria update tired war memorials, honour rolls and avenues of honour that commemorate the service of local veterans. Grants of up to $20,000 are made available. In total, we’re spending nearly $122,000 on 13 projects across the state. For more information or to apply for the next round visit www.veterans.vic.gov.au/grants. Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green “We have a proud wartime legacy in the Diamond Valley, which means so much to the community. This is our way of honouring our brave local servicemen and women.” Quotes attributable to member for Eltham, Vicki Ward “Avenues of honour, war memorials and honour rolls are a gentle reminder of the men and women who gave us all a special gift.”   Contact: Brian O’Connor - 94329782

MORE FRONTLINE POLICE

From next month, local communities will begin to see the first 300 frontline police officers on their streets. These are the first of the 3,135 police the Andrews Labor Government is delivering over five years to make communities safer and drive down crime. Northern Melbourne’s State MP’s, Danielle Green, Lily D’Ambrosio and Bronwyn Halfpenny  today welcomed the  Andrews Government announcement that the Whittlesea area will be receiving an allocation of Victoria’s 300 new frontline police funded in the 2016-17 Victorian Budget. 45 new police officers will be deployed to the Whittlesea area, which will ensure required staffing for the new Mernda Police Station planned to open later in 2017.  The extra frontline police will be also be assigned to areas such as South Morang, Epping, Thomastown and the Whittlesea township. The new police officers, which are on top of regular attrition recruiting, will give a stronger and more visible police presence on the street, staff more proactive patrols, and deliver more resources to stop crime from happening in the first place. These additional police officers also builds on the 106 new police already allocated to deal with gang related crime and public order issues, as well as increasing special response and monitoring capability. Since coming into government, more than 700 full time police positions have been allocated across the force.  The allocation of frontline police officers through the new Staff Allocation Model takes the politics out of the distribution of police resources, with Victoria Police identifying the areas that have the greatest need. Another 2,729 new police will be recruited and trained over the next four years as part of the government’s Community Safety Statement, released in December 2016. Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green: “This is great news for Melbourne’s north, extra police numbers will ensure the new Mernda Police station can operate at the highest level, keeping our communities safe.” Quotes attributable to Member for Thomastown, Bronwyn Halfpenny “The Andrews Labor Government is committed to supporting our community’s police with the resources and powers they need to continue the good work they do." Quote attributable to Member for Mill Park, Lily D’Ambrosio “These additional police allocated to Melbourne’s north will have a real impact, as they work to prevent, detect and disrupt crime.”
