The City of Joondalup has deployed three mobile CCTV units at Hepburn Avenue to the east of the Greenwood train station, Whitfords Avenue near the roundabout at the intersection of Whitfords Avenue and Tenerife Boulevard, and Mullaloo Drive between Dampier Avenue and Oceanside Promenade.

The City received $150,000 in funding from the State Government to buy the cameras, with the project driven by local MLAs Emily Hamilton (Joondalup) and Caitlin Collins (Hillarys), supported by WA Police.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said the City welcomed the support of the State Government in the effort to stop anti-social behaviour.

“This mobile CCTV infrastructure will help WA Police and other agencies with their investigations,” Mayor Jacob said.

“The City operates CCTV systems across the Joondalup City Centre and our suburbs, which helps us to deal with issues such as graffiti, abandoned vehicles, bulk litter and hazards in public space.

“The City will work closely with the WA Police in determining where the mobile CCTV infrastructure will be most useful and help to deter anti-social activity.

Emily Hamilton MLA, Member for Joondalup, said: “We’re proud to have delivered $150,000 to the City of Joondalup to fund mobile CCTV cameras for local roads in Joondalup and Hillarys. This new security infrastructure will deter dangerous driving in our suburbs.”

Caitlin Collins MLA, Member for Hillarys, said: “Local residents have raised with us the issue of hooning as a major concern in the northern suburbs. Our online surveys identified several hot spot locations to deploy the mobile CCTV cameras, which have been shared with the City of Joondalup and WA Police Force.”

The cameras will be in place for a further six weeks before they are moved to other locations of interest.
