Kingsway cam­eras for se­cu­rity

Wanneroo Times - - News -

THE Kingsway Re­gional Sport­ing Com­plex is now more se­cure af­ter a CCTV sys­tem was in­stalled to pre­vent van­dal­ism and an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour.

The sys­tem in­cludes 12 ad­di­tional se­cu­rity cam­eras that cover in­ter­nal roads, en­try and exit points and play­ing ar­eas.

Wan­neroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the sys­tem was in­stalled in a bid to de­ter anti-so­cial be­hav­iour, van­dal­ism and crime.

“Kingsway Re­gional Sport­ing Com­plex is used by hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple each year. Un­for­tu­nately there have been in­stances in the past of van­dal­ism and dam­age to the com­mu­nity as­sets, which is in­con­ve­nient for users and can cost a great deal to be re­paired,” she said.

“The ad­di­tion of a CCTV sys­tem en­hances Kingsway as a safe, fam­ily-friendly place to en­joy pas­sive and ac­tive re­cre­ation, fun and in­ter­ac­tive play­grounds and a ded­i­cated dog ex­er­cise area.”

The project was co-funded by a $207,700 Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment grant and $100,000 from the City.
