Focus on crime

LOW-COST CCTV linked to remote smart phones is becoming the norm, but more could be made of their collective community security benefits.

Bassendean council also has a commitment to CCTV, such as the library and a mobile trailer setup, but choose to hide such assets.Yes, the police do have the Blue Iris register of system locations, but more should made of the installations to create a local protective umbrella and warn potential law breakers that the community is pro-active.

As part of Neighbourhood Watch, there could be “You’re on CCTV” stickers on our Sulo bins. In addition, the council should make more of the video including segments on the Town’s website.
