When you switch on CCTV security cameras, you switch off crime.
On Saturday 8 December 2018 a new CCTV camera network in Mooroolbark was launched.
CCTV Security cameras both detect and deter crime, helping make our towns and suburbs safer places to live, work and shop.
The camera network in Mooroolbark was the last of six new networks delivered in 2018. Throughout the year, cameras in Belgrave, Monbulk, Mooroolbark, Mt Evelyn, Woori Yallock and Yarra Glen were switched on.
Promised at the 2016 Federal election, the camera networks were funded through Coalition Government’s Safer Communities Programme. They were installed by Victoria Police with the support of local traders and businesses. Importantly, they assist Victoria Police investigate and solve crime.
The camera networks installed in six towns/suburbs in 2018 are in addition to the three other federally funded networks operating in Healesville, Lilydale and Yarra Junction.
