2015 CCTV grant winners

Adelaide City Council

Improving CCTV outcomes project

This project aims to reduce the incidence and seriousness of crimes against the person (including alcohol-related violence) through improving the effectiveness and efficiency of Adelaide City Council's monitored City Safe CCTV network. The project has two key aspects: 

  • the implementation of key performance indicator (KPI) software for recording and reporting on KPIs relating to the performance of the CCTV network and operators (who monitor the network) 
  • the trial and implementation of video analytics software on the network.

Video analytics is designed to 'learn' the usual behaviours based on the motion flow in a camera's field of view. Once a 'normal' is established, the software will alert security personnel to abnormal event detection, such as vandalism or theft. 

Amount received: $95,000

City of Holdfast Bay

Holdfast Bay Costal CCTV upgrade

In 2014 the City of Holdfast upgraded its beachside coastal walk linking the south of the jurisdiction to the north.

While the northern part of Holdfast Bay (Glenelg) has developed its CCTV coverage due to the dry area and entertainment precinct, the south of the jurisdiction has fallen behind. As Brighton and Seacliff (also dry areas) are significantly growing in popularity (thus bringing an increase of minor offences) the council seeks $60,000 to broaden its surveillance network to include identified areas both along the coastal walk as well as in some prominent coastal reserves.

Amount received: $60,000
