Candid Camera Crime Surveillance – Gympie Today

CCTV installations on private property will provide police with a new weapon against crime, but only if the private homes and businesses that operate the cameras agree to be involved.

Gympie Police will monitor misbehavior in the central business districts of the Gympie area towns, from Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay to Gympie, Imbil and Goomeri.

The move is part of a private security camera against crime and harassment, according to Gympie Patrol Group Inspector Brad Inskip.

Insp Inskip will launch the Gympie Patrol Group Community Camera Alliance next Wednesday (September 7) on the Nelson Reserve Stage at 11am.

“The alliance is a Queensland Police Service project designed to empower community members to help police prevent and solve crime in their area.

“It allows owners of homes and businesses with CCTV to register their details to help police in their investigations.

Those wishing to attend the launch of the alliance are invited to confirm their attendance today (Friday September 2) by contacting the Patrol Group’s Crime Prevention Coordinator, Snr Cnst Darren Hewitt.

The program would use readily available technology already present in many homes and businesses.

Community members could register their details online through the Qld Police Department website or through a Gympie Patrol Group Crime Prevention Coordinator registration form.

And they could withdraw their involvement at any time.

“CCTV has become a crucial investigative tool. CCTV footage is routinely used to investigate and solve often serious crimes and is invaluable when used as evidence,” he said.

People with CCTV systems can register online and, if they change their mind, their registration can be removed.
