Thirty-three new high-tech cameras have been installed across parks in Logan thanks to a $950,000 investment from the Federal Government’s Safer Communities Fund.
This takes the Logan Safety Camera Network to a total of 210 monitored CCTV cameras.
Federal Member for Forde Bert van Manen, said the new cameras will assist police in their work and increase community safety in neighbourhoods and parks.
“The new high-resolution cameras have number plate recognition capabilities and zooming capabilities over several kilometres, which will greatly assist authorities in keeping watch on anti-social behaviour in the Logan area,” he said.
Logan City Council Community Services Director Katie Barton-Harvey said the CCTV network was monitored around the clock by Council.
“We work in a collaborative partnership with the Queensland Police Service,” Ms Barton-Harvey said.
“These cameras greatly assist police in their work and gives them extra eyes on public spaces which will boost community confidence.
Another three cameras will be installed with savings derived from the Safer Communities Fund (Round 2) project.
