Western Australian State CCTV Strategy

Whilst Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) has increasingly featured in the community as a safety and crime prevention tool, the growth of technology has not been without complications and, in the past, there has been limited coordination between the various CCTV systems in Western Australia.

To address this lack of coordination, the WA Government made an election commitment in 2013 to implement a single overarching State CCTV Strategy for WA.

The State CCTV Strategy, formally launched in November 2015 by Minister for Police, the Hon Liza Harvey MLA, aims to deliver more effective use of CCTV in WA to enhance community safety and security.

This will be achieved by establishing a coordinated State CCTV network, and by providing grants to local government authorities to install additional CCTV cameras and other infrastructure in crime hotspots.
