“Businesses in the Bathurst Regional Council local government area can applyfor up to a maximum $500 in funding, on a dollar for dollar basis toinstall CCTV equipment at their business premises,” Cr Rush said.
“One of the important criteria in considering applications is to ensure atleast some of the coverage of the cameras includes the public domain, forexample, a car park or footpath
“This helps ensure there is a public benefit component to the project aswell as providing improved security for local businesses.”
LJ Hooker Bathurst secured funding in the first round of the program to install CCTV at the Howick Street agency.
Director Zac Theobald said having CCTV hadbrought a lot of peace of mind.
“This biggest thing with it is knowing that our premises are safe and secure,” he said.
“If our office alarm is going off at any time during the night, we can just pull out an iPhone and check everything is okay.”
