Safe City Cameras Melbourne

To promote city safety, 53 close circuit TV (CCTV) surveillance cameras are installed in the city.

The cameras operate in areas where anti-social behaviour or criminal activity are more likely to occur. The cameras are linked to a control centre staffed 24 hours a day. Signs and pavement plaques have been placed in areas where activity is being monitored.

The program aims to provide a safer environment and reduce crime levels by deterring potential offenders and helping in crime detection.

The Safe City Camera Program

The City of Melbourne established a CCTV system in the city in 1997. The Safe City Cameras Program (SCCP) has operated continuously since that time and is one aspect of Council’s Strategy for a Safer City 2011–2013.

This camera program assists Council and the Victoria Police to work together to improve response times to crime and other emergencies. The program was developed to:

  • contribute to the provision of a safer physical environment
  • assist Victoria Police to reduce crime levels by deterring potential offenders
  • aid detection of crime, breaches of laws, identify offenders and assist with emergency response.
