The proportion of the €1 million funding provided for in budget 2017 for community CCTV schemes which will be allocated to north County Dublin
To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the proportion of the €1 million funding provided for in budget 2017 for community CCTV schemes which will be allocated to north County Dublin; when she expects this money to come into effect; and if she will make a statement on the matter.
- Darragh O'Brien
I am very conscious of the value that communities, especially rural communities, place on CCTV as a means of deterring crime and assisting in the detection of offenders.
The Deputy will be aware that the Programme for a Partnership Government commits to providing investment in CCTV systems and that I have secured €1 million in Budget 2017 to begin a new round of community CCTV schemes in line with the Programme. I expect to make an announcement in this context shortly.
