SEVEN overt mobile CCTV towers have been rolled out across the City of Swan – three in Ellenbrook and four across Bennett Springs, Beechboro, Malaga and Lockridge.
The boost in security surveillance is thanks to more than $187,000 of Commonwealth Government funding from the Community Development Grants Programme.
City of Swan mayor David Lucas said the addition of mobile CCTV units provided the City with greater capability to assist local police to collect evidence of criminal activity for post-incident investigations and target anti-social behaviour hot spots.
“As one of the fastest growing local government areas in the Perth metropolitan area, one of the myriad challenges we face with an increasing population is community safety,” mayor Lucas said.
Hasluck MP Ken Wyatt said improving surveillance technology was a positive step to reducing crime and anti-social activities in our neighbourhoods.
“The Morrison government’s most recent investment in mobile CCTV infrastructure builds on our previous work with the City of Swan to develop world-class security systems to keep local families, children and residents safe,” he said.
“I congratulate the City of Swan for their proactive approach to local security, which will detect and deter crimes in the area.”
