Security cameras to keep watch on Weinam Creek precinct

A unique agreement across three levels of government will see security cameras installed at the Weinam Creek marina precinct in Redland Bay.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said work starting this week on the installation of the security cameras came after funding from the Federal Government and a Memorandum of Understanding with the State Government to monitor footage from the cameras.

“The Weinam Creek marina precinct is used by hundreds of residents every day and the cameras will be a welcomed addition to the car parking area,” Cr Williams said.

“We have seen a number of concerning cases of vandalism at Weinam Creek in recent months, which prompted me to speak with local police and Translink to see how we can work together to make the area safer.

“The result is an MOU between Council, Translink and Queensland Police so any footage captured by the cameras can be accessed for evidence, helping improve community confidence by cracking down on criminal behaviour.”
