No applications for a rural CCTV funding scheme have been approved by the Department of Justice.

The scheme was announced in April and given more funding last month, but no applications by local groups have been successful.

The fund is meant to allow communities to install CCTV in ‘at risk areas’.

However Tipperary Labour TD Alan Kelly says the application process needs to be re-evaluated.
