Logan Safety Camera Program
The Logan Safety Camera Program involves 24/7 real-time monitoring, recording and reporting services by trained and qualified operators from a dedicated, secure Monitoring Control Room.
The cameras are high quality, full colour, 360 degree, pan tilt, zoom (PTZ) cameras, which can achieve up to 200m zoom at full DVD quality and have specialised system equipment and technology.
There are strict policies, standing orders and operational procedures to ensure integrity, confidentiality and the privacy of the community at all times.

The mobile safety camera travels across the city to key locations and events to assist in addressing transient crime and antisocial behaviour in public spaces.
Since its inception in 2001, the Logan Safety Camera Program has significantly impacted on Council's capacity to provide a proactive and reactive response to crime, safety and antisocial behaviour. Council works in close partnership with the Queensland Police Service - Logan District, which includes a 'live' and dedicated link from Council's 24/7 Monitoring Control Room to the Police Communications Centre.
In 2005, Logan was the first Council in Queensland to formally partner with Queensland Rail in the provision of monitoring services for Queensland Rail owned and operated security cameras at railway stations in Logan City. Council currently has a monitoring agreement with Queensland Rail for over 120 security cameras at Logan City railway stations. This partnership assists in enhancing safety of railway commuters and will be expanded to all railway stations within Logan.
The Logan Safety Camera Program has formally received numerous awards and commendations for outstanding community safety achievements, innovation, technology and partnerships and has successfully secured millions of dollars in funding contributions from state and federal government agencies. The program will continue to be developed and expanded to new areas across the city and implemented in tandem with crime prevention and community safety strategies, which address all aspects of crime, causes of crime and fear of crime.
The Logan Safety Camera Program boasts a state of the art monitoring facility that operates 24/7 to enhance the safety of residents and visitors of the City of Logan.
To increase knowledge and understanding of this program, Council will commence a Community Education Program in early 2016. This program will allow community and school groups to tour the monitoring facility and learn more about how the history of the Logan Safety Camera Program, how it operates and some success stories from the program.
