Landmark has eye on safety
The water tower is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Edens Landing and it’s now also helping keep residents safe.
Two new high-definition safety cameras have been installed on the tower in Overland Drive.
They can capture clear images from as far away as Logan River Road and sites around Holmview and Bethania.
Cameras will also be installed at Castile Crescent and Ivanhoe Drive (Edens Landing), Grove Road and Avonmore Street (Edens Landing), Logan River Road and Castile Crescent (Bethania) and at the Bethania Aquatic Centre.
“These cameras are about keeping residents safe by detecting criminal acts earlier.”— Councillor Tony Hall
“These cameras are about keeping residents safe by detecting criminal acts earlier and assisting police to respond quickly,” Councillor Tony Hall says.
“Their high-definition capabilities enable police to detect key details such as number plates, even at night, which is helping keep our Division 6 communities safer.”
Cr Hall takes a proactive approach to community safety by regularly catching up with officers from Loganlea Police Beat and local shop owners to discuss crime prevention and security.
“While Division 6 is pretty safe, it still pays to work together to know what the issues are and develop a coordinated approach to addressing them,” he says.
Cr Hall is also a member of Logan City Council’s Hooning Taskforce, which aims to tackle the problem of hooning with the help of key stakeholders from various levels of government and the Queensland Police Service.
