The Victorian Government is expanding the Personal Safety Initiative. $17 million will fund safety responses and technology such as CCTV, personal alarms, locks and security doors. $2.6 million will fund 17 Personal Safety Coordinators.
The Personal Safety Initiative has been piloted in regions including Darebin, Whittlesea, Moreland and Hume. The intention of the initiative is to keep women and children safe in their homes and communities, using innovative technology. (Source: Premier’s Media Centre, 29/4/17)
