Warrnambool City Council is assessing perceptions of personal safety in the foreshore precinct ahead of the installation of CCTV cameras.

Warrnambool City Council received Victorian Government funding of $52,843 for CCTV cameras which will be installed along Viaduct Road, the Pavilion and the area of the foreshore where the summer carnival is staged.

“Before the cameras as are installed we want to get a measure on how safe people feel in those areas,” Council’s Manager City Amenity Glenn Reddick said.

“The police have identified the three locations for the cameras.

“They have found the cameras do act as a deterrent and that they have helped with the presentation of evidence in court.

“We’re also interested in whether the presence of CCTV cameras has an impact on how safe people feel in a particular area.”

Mayor Robert Anderson said the partnership with police on community safety had brought about positive results for residents and visitors to Warrnambool.

Warrnambool has 10 CCTV cameras in the city centre. The images they provide are monitored and recorded by police.

The survey closes on April 27.
