CAMERAS FOR CITY OF SWAN
Security cameras will be installed along Spring Park Road and Great Eastern Highway across the Midland CBD, at the Altone Park Leisure Centre and the Alice Deveron Centre. The locations were chosen as they are key retail, entertainment and recreation precincts and can be affected by anti-social behaviour. The Federal Government grant will also allow for upgraded lighting throughout the Midland CBD, which has been identified as a priority by the City. This will improve safety in the area after dark and increases the quality of the CCTV cameras’ night vision. The funding will also go towards CCTV infrastructure and the installation of a 1.7km optic fibre link between the City CCTV Control Room and the State Police Operations Centre in Midland, which will enable police to access more than 250 cameras across the City of Swan.
