Closed circuit television (CCTV) is a useful tool in the detection and investigation of community safety and crime problems. The Town of Victoria Park has developed this partnership program with WA Police to increase the number of CCTV systems in the Town in strategic locations.

The intent of the CCTV partnership program is to assist private residences, businesses or community groups to install an effective CCTV system and create a partnership between the applicant, WA Police, and the Town to address crime and safety problems through visual surveillance.

The Town is providing up to $750 funding to CCTV projects in partnership with the community and WA Police. Please contact the Town to discuss your plans for a CCTV system before installation or applying to be a part of this partnership program.
