City Safe CCTV Network
City of Adelaide owns and operates a public CCTV system known as the City Safe CCTV network which is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by SA Police. Coverage of the City Safe network focuses on high pedestrian movement areas where the city is busiest and there is potential for crime against the person to occur.
Public CCTV is just one tool used by Council and SA Police to improve safety and reduce crime across the city. Where in operation, CCTV can help to:
- Deter potential offenders from committing crime
- Provide ‘eyes on the street’ when police patrols are not present
- Identify crime as it occurs, allowing for prompt police response
- Assist with identification and prosecution after an incident has occurred
- Improve community confidence and perceptions of safety in areas covered by the CCTV network
- Enable Council to enforce the Local Government Act and By-Laws.
CCTV can support safety in the city, however it is important that everyone takes responsibility for their personal safety when moving around the city and observe basic safety measures, such as:
- Walking in well-lit areas
- Staying alert and being aware of your surroundings
- Wherever possible don’t walk alone at night
- Use safer late-night transport options such as after-midnight buses and managed taxi ranks
- Trust your instincts; if you feel unsafe move on immediately and be prepared to call for help.
