CCTV Announcement - August 8/20

Our government announced an investment of $6 million over three years to expand the coverage of closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems, a key tool in the fight against guns and gangs and other criminal activity.

This investment is available through the Ontario CCTV Grant, a new program designed to ensure police have the additional resources necessary to keep their communities safe and hold criminals responsible which is the focus of Ontario’s Guns, Gangs and Violence Reduction Strategy.

All municipal and First Nations police services, as well as the Ontario Provincial Police, will be able to apply for funding for the first year of the CCTV Grant cycle (2020-2021).

All applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday September 10, 2020.
