CBD Crime Prevention through CCTV
The Crime Prevention through CCTV Project establishment phase was finalised in December 2009. The use of CCTV cameras in the CBD has provided Police with an additional tool in deterring anti-social behaviour and identifying those responsible.
The Crime Prevention through CCTV Project Code of Practice was developed by Orange City Council in consultation with the Canobolas Local Area Command and the Orange community. This Code of Practice relates to 9 CCTV cameras operating in the CBD and contains key principles for the operation of this system.
