THE Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex is now more secure after a new CCTV system was installed to prevent vandalism and anti-social behaviour.
The new system includes 12 additional security cameras that cover internal roads, entry and exit points and playing areas.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the system was installed in a bid to deter anti-social behaviour, vandalism and criminal activity.
“Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex is used by hundreds of thousands of people each year,” she said.
“Unfortunately, there have been instances in the past of vandalism and damage to the community assets, which is inconvenient for users and can cost a great deal to be repaired.
“The addition of a CCTV system enhances Kingsway as a safe, family-friendly place to enjoy passive and active recreation, fun and interactive playgrounds and a dedicated dog exercise area.”
The project was co-funded by a $207,700 Federal Government grant and $100,000 from the City.
