CCTV Partnership Program

Applications: OPEN (Closing June 30 2024)

Total funding value: $90,000

Maximum rebate: $750

Closed circuit television (CCTV) is a useful tool in the detection and investigation of community safety and crime challenges. The Town of Victoria Park has developed this partnership program with the WA Police Force to increase the number of CCTV and security camera systems in strategic locations. The intent of CCTV Partnership Program aims to assist private residences, businesses, and community groups to install an effective CCTV system and create a partnership between the applicant, the WA Police Force, and the Town to address crime and safety problems through visual surveillance.

The Town is providing rebates for half the cost of a CCTV project (up to $750). This financial year, the Town is also introducing rebates for half the cost of non-hardwired security camera systems (up to $250). To be eligible for a rebate, for either a CCTV project or a security camera system, the system must overlook the public realm and/or common areas. Residents, businesses, and community groups are all eligible to apply.
