Mr Abbott visited Leumeah train station, in the federal seat of MacArthur, to announce he would reinstate a $50 million Howard government program that funded CCTV cameras around the country.

“Money will be available for councils to apply so they can get better lighting and things like CCTV in crime hotspots,” he said. “It does so much to assure that people know that if they do the wrong thing they will be seen, they will be caught and they will be prosecuted.”

The “Safer Streets” program would be funded using money confiscated under the proceeds of crime act.
