Maroondah Journal: Safety boost as police push for cameras in Ringwood

By May 22, 2007No Comments

The Maroondah Journal has reported on a Ringwood Police initiative to see live security cameras installed within the centre of Ringwood. This proposal is similar to the cameras that have been installed at Lilydale, which has seen a 70 percent reduction in crime.

Public Transport Users Association spokesman Alex Makin said the cameras “were certainly a good idea. Statistics in Lilydale has showed how it has deterred crime.”

The Ringwood Police are planning to request four cameras which will monitor the station, the nightclub precinct and the Ringwood Skatepark. Funding for the proposal, similarily to Lilydale, would be dependent on a successful grant from the Federal Government.
