Closer eye on Daisy Hill streets
Residents of Daisy Hill will be able to sleep more soundly as new eyes in the sky will be keeping watch over the suburb’s streets.
Three CCTV safety cameras are being installed at ‘pinch point’ intersections on Chatswood and Daisy Hill Roads, to monitor traffic movement through the area.
A pinch point is an intersection through which most vehicles, including any would-be offenders, must travel to access local streets.
Councillor Mindy Russell worked closely with the Queensland Police Service and Daisy Hill Neighbourhood Watch to identify prime locations for surveillance.
‘I’m very glad to be able to give the community of Daisy Hill some more peace-of-mind when it comes to the safety and security of their homes,’
Cr Russell says.
‘The installation of new CCTV safety cameras is an important strategy that aims to not only capture, but deter crime in our loved neighbourhoods.’
Neighbourhood Watch President John Devaus says the installation of the cameras was a good start towards improving community safety.
‘What we’re looking for is a safe and secure and friendly place to live and the cameras should aid in doing that,’ John says.
