Hastings Police has donated £500 to the In2Play Community Interest Company to go towards new closed circuit television (CCTV) equipment.
Clare Moutrie, Hastings Adventure Playground manager, said: “The camera will help play workers keep the playground safe for all the children and families who enjoy the space.
“We would like to thank the local Neighbourhood Policing Team who visit the site regularly and who supported our application to this fund.”
The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
Police Community Support Officer Faye Spires said: “The money enables us to help support local organisations. I am really pleased that we were able to help In2Play.”
