Community and Small Business CCTV Fund

The Community and Small Business CCTV Fund was a program previously available to eligible small businesses and community organisations.

The CCTV Fund operated from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2023. 

The fund provided funded CCTV packages of up to $5,000 to eligible community groups and small businesses in eligible Local Government Areas in Greater Sydney.

Information for recipients of CCTV packages

All CCTV systems installed under the fund are registered with the NSW Police. If a crime occurs, Police may request access to relevant data to help identify and prosecute offenders. Your right to privacy is important, so Police will only request access to your CCTV footage if a crime occurs.
