New grants for CCTV systems

Community groups across the country can now apply for a new grant to set up CCTV systems.

Under the scheme, eligible groups can apply for grant-aid of up to 60 percent of the total capital cost, up to a maximum of €40,000.

Tánaiste and Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald says the initiative aims to enhance existing policing in the community along with preventing and reducing local crime.
