The City, in partnership with the West Australian Police, is trialing the placement of mobile, solar-powered Closed-Circuit TV (CCTV) systems in a variety of public spaces throughout the City as part of the Public Areas CCTV Trial.
The aims for this trial include:
- Deterring criminal, anti-social and suspicious activities
- Viewing and recording images of such activities in progress
- Assisting with the management of factors that create a fear of crime
- Supporting the investigations of authorised agencies, such as the WA Police, and providing them with images that can be used in prosecutions
- Assisting the City with event coordination, emergency management, traffic monitoring and other activities in public areas.
- The City cooperates closely with the State Government and WA Police on strategies to ensure CCTV is implemented and utilised in an effective and responsible manner.
The CCTV systems focus only on publicly accessible spaces and do not record private properties or activities. All recorded CCTV footage is stored securely and is not available to the general public unless ordered by a legal ruling or granted under the Freedom of Information Act 1992.
