Have say on Forum security cameras
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.
