Community safety in Narromine is set to improve after the installation of six CCTV cameras in the CBD.
The safety boost comes after co-contributed support from the NSW government and the Narromine Shire Council to install high-definition CCTV cameras in crime hot spots throughout the town to improve community safety, security and confidence in public places.

The cameras are welcomed by local police and the Narromine Shire Council, with Narromine Shire General Manager Jane Redden agreeing the cameras will help reduce crime in town.
“The cameras have been strategically placed to provide coverage of the CBD,” Ms Redden said.
“The cameras will provide 24-hour surveillance and will help to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour within the CBD.
“The 24 hour surveillance means there is a much greater chance of capturing crucial footage during police investigations, with the police able to access the footage at all times.”
The council was awarded $179,088 through the 2018 NSW Community Safety Fund and co-contributed $49,772 to install the CCTV cameras in Narromine’s CBD.
The CCTV camera installed in the Narromine CBD will provide local police with a proactive policing tool to live-view and monitor activities in the CBD and to review footage and identify offenders following reported incidents.
