Federal Member for Aston Alan Tudge MP has welcomed the opening of the CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) System at Boronia Junction Shopping Centre.
The system will assist police in the surveillance of the area while also providing valuable evidence to help track down those responsible for crime and antisocial behaviour. Images from the centre will be beamed directly to Boronia Police station where officers will be able to monitor and detect any incidents 24/7.
“These new CCTV cameras will help Knox Police reduce crime across the shopping precinct,” Mr Tudge said.
“CCTVs are an effective way to tackle crime hotspots across Knox and ensure that our streets are safe.”
“More CCTV camera systems should be rolled out across Knox as a way to reduce crime in local shopping centres.”
“Shopping strips such as Mountain Gate and Wantirna Mall should be next on the list for installing security camera systems,” he said.
