Launch of Community Camera Alliance in Gympie

Inspector Brad Inskip of the Gympie Police Patrol Group launched the Queensland Police Service (QPS) Community Camera Alliance initiative in Gympie today.

The Community Camera Alliance is a QPS-led community safety initiative in which local businesses and residents with closed-circuit television (CCTV) register their systems with police to help prevent and solve crimes.

Businesses and residents participate in the program on a voluntary basis, with registration details securely stored in a police database accessible only by police on approved devices.

Inspector Inskip said registering with the Community Camera Alliance gives police access to an important investigative resource.

“The Community Camera Alliance is an initiative of the Queensland Police Service which aims to promote the relationship between the community and the QPS by encouraging the recording of CCTV systems located in the Gympie area which includes Gympie, Imbil, Goomeri, Kilkivan, Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach,” Inspector Inskip said.

“If the police believe that a CCTV system can help solve a crime or help in any other way, people registered in a particular area will be contacted and asked to provide assistance.

“We strongly encourage any local residents or businesses within the Gympie Patrol group, with a CCTV system installed, to log in and register it.

“If for any reason you change your mind, you can let us know at any time to have your entry removed from the database,” he said.

Recording your CCTV does not mean that the police will be able to access your system, it just means that we have a database of systems and people ready to help with CCTV footage should the police require it.
