Community members can now apply for a rebate to install CCTV, as part of a new community safety program from the City of Gosnells.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said funding of up to $500 was available to help property owners purchase an effective CCTV system.

“Community safety is a high priority for our community and residents can play an active role in helping to prevent crime in their neighbourhood as well as assisting the police to apprehend offenders,” she said.

“The Safe City Community CCTV Program will improve home security and offer peace of mind to residents while increasing the number of CCTV cameras available to the WA Police Force to assist them with their investigations.

“Working together as a community is the best way to improve community safety,” Mayor Lynes said.

To be eligible, applicants must have a public facing camera and are required to register their CCTV system to the WA Police Force CamMap system and agree to provide footage to WA Police Force when requested.

Funding is available for up to 250 properties, so be quick to avoid missing out. Residential and commercial properties can apply.

The launch of the Safe City Community CCTV Program on Wednesday 12 October is part of the City’s activities for Community Safety Month, which runs throughout the month.
