Smart­Watch catches its first hoon

Southern Telegraph - - News -

A new mo­bile sur­veil­lance ser­vice on the streets of Rock­ing­ham has caught its first hoon driver.

Smart­Watch com­prises a fleet of six high-tech cars each equipped with high-def­i­ni­tion video cam­eras that can live-stream to Rock­ing­ham Po­lice Sta­tion for real-time mon­i­tor­ing of sit­u­a­tions.

City of Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels praised the mo­bile sur­veil­lance ser­vice af­ter a hoon driver was caught in the act last week. “Footage was taken of a driver be­hav­ing dan­ger­ously and we have passed the de­tails of the car, driver and reg­is­tra­tion num­ber on to the po­lice for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” he said.

Res­i­dents con­cerned about hooning are en­cour­aged to con­tact po­lice.
