SECURITY has been ramped up at a North Beach sports club thanks to a local donation.

Tuart Hill business Blueforce has donated and installed a CCTV network at North Beach Rugby League Football Club’s facility at Charles Riley Memorial Reserve.

It also installed a sound system as part of its community program, with equipment provided by Central Security Distribution and Audio Source.

Club president Chris Dever welcomed the additional technology.

“The new CCTV system donated by Blueforce not only reduces the risk of break-ins and criminal damage to club assets, it also allows us to improve our internal governance,” he said.

“Management will be able to use footage to ensure compliance with club standards, enabling us to better protect our staff and patrons.

“The upgraded PA system is user-friendly for more effective communication with patrons at functions and on game days, and we can generate greater income from hiring out better appointed facilities.”

Blueforce director Dale Lofts said the business established its community program after benefiting from a Federal Government grant for a CCTV system earlier this year.

“Community organisations usually rely heavily on members volunteering their resources and time to get things done, and often struggle to maintain or upgrade infrastructure to get the most out of their facilities,” he said.

“We realised that our annual team-building day offered a fantastic opportunity to get involved with these organisations and donate labour and equipment to provide something meaningful to our local community.

“Moving forward, each year Blueforce will focus our team-building event on delivering similar projects to community-based organisations in need.”

The program is open to all community organisations across Perth and the next round of applications opens on February 1, 2019.
