    As part of the introduction of the new cameras, the Attorney-General’s Department and Council is seeking feedback from the community regarding the extent that CCTV contributes to city users feeling safe at various times of the day or night.

    Community input will also help to identify the level of awareness of the CCTV network and its effectiveness as tool in the prevention of crime.
