ACT Govt invests $100K in public safety CCTV cameras

The ACT Government has installed four new closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras at Henry Rolland Park in a $100,000 bid to improve community safety and asset protection.

The ‘state-of-the-art’ cameras — which are designed to provide high definition, 360-degree coverage of the park and connect to the ACT’s Public Safety CCTV Network — come as part of the government’s Strategic CCTV Plan 2020-22 which aims to boost security in public areas and support ACT Policing in investigating and prosecuting criminal offenders.

ACT Policing used Public Safety CCTV Network footage on 277 occasions in 2018–19 and has been dispatched to 79 incidents captured by live monitoring, the ACT Government reported.

The Network is operated in accordance with the Territory’s human rights, privacy and records laws, the government noted.
