The installation of nine Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras  in Warrnambool’s city centre has begun.

The first camera was installed in Ozone Car Park with the remaining cameras to be installed at the intersections of Timor and Liebig streets, Timor and Gilles streets, Timor and Kepler streets, Koroit and Kepler streets, in Koroit St and Liebig St.

The CCTV project is a partnership between Warrnambool City Council (WCC), Warrnambool Police and has included input from community stakeholders including taxi drivers and venue operators.

Warrnambool Mayor Cr Michael Neoh said the cameras would be an extremely useful tool in helping to create a safer environment within the Warrnambool CBD including the entertainment precinct.

Cr Neoh said a survey early last year showed a high level of community support for CCTV cameras within the city centre.

The cameras will become operational next month and will remain in operation 24 hours a day.

Footage taken by the cameras, part of the City Centre Renewal, will be monitored by police officers at the Warrnambool Police Station.

Funding for the CCTV came from the State Government ($168,000) and WCC ($25,000).

The project also includes a work station and hard drive to monitor and store recorded footage at the Warrnambool police station.

WCC will maintain the CCTV system.
