Have say on Fo­rum se­cu­rity cam­eras

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - PENINSULA SNAPSHOT -

BEL­MONT residents are be­ing en­cour­aged to com­plete a sur­vey about the City’s closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion project around the Bel­mont Fo­rum shopping cen­tre.

In 2014, the City ob­tained a grant through the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Safer Streets Pro­gram to in­stall CCTV cam­eras around the perime­ter of Bel­mont Fo­rum shopping cen­tre.

The City, in part­ner­ship with WA Po­lice, the shopping cen­tre and the By­b­los Group, has now in­stalled 27 cam­eras around the cen­tre.

Bel­mont Mayor Phil Marks en­cour­aged com­mu­nity mem­bers to com­plete the sur­vey.

“We want to know your thoughts about CCTV in the Bel­mont Fo­rum area and the City’s crime preven­tion mea­sures,” Cr Marks said.

“The pres­ence of CCTV cam­eras aims to pro­vide residents and busi­nesses with in­creased safety and se­cu­rity to both de­ter of­fend­ers and as­sist po­lice in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of of­fences.

“CCTV can make a great dif­fer­ence to an area and has proven to in­crease the num­ber of pos­i­tive iden­ti­fi­ca­tions and sub­se­quent pros­e­cu­tion of of­fend­ers.” Cam­eras are in­stalled at:

The in­ter­sec­tion of Aber­nethy Road and Wright Street;

Wright Street to­wards the in­ter­sec­tion at Bel­mont Av­enue;

Bel­mont Av­enue be­tween Wright Street and Ful­ham Street;

The in­ter­sec­tion of Bel­mont Av­enue and Ful­ham Street; and

The in­ter­sec­tion of Aber­nethy Road and Ful­ham Street con­tin­u­ing along Ful­ham Street to­wards Bel­mont Av­enue.

To take part in the sur­vey, go on­line to www.con­nect. bel­mont.wa.gov.au
