CCTV camera upgrade for Hedland

Taylar AmoniniNorth West Telegraph

The Town of Port Hedland has approved the first stages of acquiring new and improved CCTV cameras.

As one of five North West towns to share in $5 million of State Government funding to install additional CCTV cameras in local crime hotspots earlier this year, Port Hedland has been looking to upgrade their equipment for some time.

Mayor Camilo Blanco said the new cameras would help prevent antisocial and violent behaviour that has plagued the town in recent years.

“With the updated cameras we will be able to spot who are the instigators of violence and go straight to the source,” he said.

“I’m really excited for their implementation.”
