Eagleby has been given a boost in safety with the installation of new CCTV cameras in specific locations set to help protect residents.
The suburb was missing this service that is monitored by Logan City Council and Cr Karen Murphy worked with police to select the best locations.
Cr Murphy said these are the first pictures taken from the cameras installed in Eagleby with one more waiting to be connected and two being installed as we speak.
“One of the first jobs I did after being elected was to investigate how we can make Eagleby a safer place to live and work.
“It was one of biggest issues I heard from residents during the election, and I was determined to address it.
“With the help of the Community Services team and Eagleby Police I was able to secure funding for the delivery of 5 new CCTV cameras for Eagleby.
“The locations were identified following extensive community consultation with local police and residents to ensure we were installing these at the right places.
“These cameras are the first two locations to be activated with three more on the way.”
The live feed will be actively monitored by Logan City Council’s community safety team and will play a key role in helping local police investigate crimes, accidents, and act as a deterrence for illegal behaviour.
Logan City Council has a network of over 250 CCTV cameras that operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep you and your family safe.
“I’m always looking at installing these cameras at more locations where possible so please get in touch if you have any feedback or suggestions.
“Just give me a call or flick me an email,” said Cr Murphy.
