Council secures federal funding for more cameras
Published: 20 September 2018
Logan City Council has secured Federal Government funding to increase CCTV coverage in parks throughout the City of Logan.
Twenty-three new safety cameras will be installed after Council received a $950,000 grant as part of the Safer Communities Fund - Round 2.
Councillor Steve Swenson, City Lifestyle and Community Committee Chairperson, said the project demonstrates that Council, along with the Federal Government, is committed to making the City of Logan’s public spaces safer.
“The installation of 23 new CCTV safety cameras is aimed at reducing crimes and anti-social behaviour, as well as boosting the community’s confidence and safety when they are out and about in the beautiful parks we have throughout the City of Logan,” Cr Swenson said.
“The new cameras will be strategically located in parks that have been identified as having community need due to ongoing or increasing safety concerns.”
The new CCTV safety cameras will be installed at:
- Passerine Park, Rochedale South
- Albert Park, Woodridge
- Oates Park, Woodridge
- Mayes Park, Kingston
- Erdani Park, Kingston
- Reserve Park, Slacks Creek
- Noyer Park, Mount Warren Park
- Village Green, Logan Village (two cameras, including one to provide vision of the Forest of Memories)
- Buxton Avenue District Park, Yarrabilba

Cr Swenson said the new cameras, which are expected to be installed and commissioned by late 2019, will be constantly monitored at the Logan Safety Camera Program monitoring room.
