A grant was also awarded to Kialla Golf Club.
Mrs Powell said the Victorian Government’s new crime prevention project would support a safer Shepparton and district community.
She said Dhurringile Tennis Club received $10000, which would allow it to install security lights, an alarm system and Crimsafe windows to prevent the sporting club from burglary and property damage.
‘‘These improvements will provide safer and more secure facilities in the district,’’ Mrs Powell said.
Crime Prevention Minister Edward O’Donohue said the Victorian Government’s Community Crime Prevention Program was about facilitating local solutions for local problems.
‘‘Local communities know the community safety problems they are experiencing and know what the solutions are,’’ he said.
Mrs Powell said the Community Safety Fund supported communities to implement practical projects to deter crime and promote safety.
‘‘I congratulate Dhurringile Tennis Club and Kialla Golf Club on their success in receiving this important funding,’’ she said.
