Goondiwindi Businesses to Help Map CCTV

Goondiwindi businesses are being asked to help Council map the CCTV capabilities in the town’s CBD.

Goondiwindi Regional Council will conduct an audit this month to determine the level of security camera coverage in the main street and other public areas.

The information will help Council to build its Strategy for future CCTV planning and will be used to determine the locations of the new cameras as funds become available.

Council is also asking businesses to enter into a community agreement to share captured CCTV footage with police to help identify offenders.

‘Increasing the CCTV coverage in the Goondiwindi CBD has been a concern for some time for residents,’ said Goondiwindi Regional Council Mayor Graeme Scheu.

‘There is obviously community desire for greater security camera footage in the town’.

‘We are asking main street businesses to assist in mapping the current CCTV capabilities to work out where the money needs to be spent to get the maximum coverage possible and try to avoid duplicating areas already covered,’ Cr Scheu said.

Council will be speaking to all businesses with a central CBD presence to determine what level of security camera coverage already exists in the town. The privacy and security of local businesses is paramount and the information received in the audit will be kept strictly confidential.

‘More complete CCTV coverage is a great preventative measure and another tool to help police identify future offenders,’ Cr Scheu said.

‘Working together with our local businesses and police is an important part of making sure we get the best outcome in improving the safety of our streets and community.’

  • If your business is willing to take part in the audit, please contact Tom Hohn on 4671 7411 or thohn@grc.qld.gov.au
