We’re committed to listening to the concerns of our community. Ongoing community consultation continues to identify CCTV as a priority within our community.

What is the City’s Current CCTV Status?

The City recognises the many different types and applications of CCTV, and utilises a combination of both fixed and mobile systems to ensure the most appropriate application and optimal system coverage.

The City has a network of over 330 fixed CCTV cameras, owns two mobile CCTV units, and has a series of leased mobile units to prevent damage to City assets and assist in deterring and detecting crime and antisocial behaviour. 

Did you know in 2023 there were 25,000+ hours of Mobile CCTV deployment throughout the district, reflecting a 47% increase from the previous year?

We’re committed to listening to the concerns of our community.  Ongoing community consultation continues to identify CCTV as a priority within our community, as identified via:

What about private CCTV systems?

As part of the City’s commitment to encouraging residents to improve their own security, the annual Security Incentive Scheme provides rebates to encourage residents to install home security items, including CCTV. The Scheme offers rebates up to the value of $200 ($300 for concession holders).

To date, the City has subsidised the installation of over $1 million worth of security items installed by the community, with one quarter of rebates issued to support the installation of private CCTV systems.
