New CCTV camera for Docklands

31 Jul 2014

Docklands has become an even safer place to live, work and visit, with a new council CCTV camera installed last month.

The new camera, located on the footbridge from Bourke St to Etihad Stadium, is the fifth council-managed CCTV camera in Docklands, with the four other cameras located along Harbour Esplanade.

The new camera was installed after the City of Melbourne received $250,000 funding from the State Government.

Council has installed nine new CCTV cameras across the CBD and Docklands and upgraded the network’s monitoring infrastructure.

Crime Prevention Minister Edward O’Donohue said the locations of the new cameras had been chosen in consultation with police to help deter vandalism, graffiti, theft from vehicles and anti-social behaviour.

“The additional CCTV cameras will make a big difference, assisting police in preventing, detecting and investigating crimes in Melbourne’s busy city centre,” Mr O’Donohue said.

“They will support a safer CBD and Docklands for everyone who works, lives, trades and visits our great city.”

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the new cameras expanded the reach of the Safe City Camera Program throughout the city.

“The City of Melbourne’s cameras are monitored 24 hours a day and have the ability to record images over a range of several hundred metres,” Cr Doyle said.

“The Safe City Camera Program has proven to be an effective tool in both crime prevention and crime prosecution.”
