Why aren’t cameras working?
I’D LIKE to ask the Toodyay Shire Council whether the CCTV cameras that are installed in the town’s main street and skate park area are fully operational?
As most are aware, there was a serious incident in the main street on August 19 which involved a car being stolen and rammed into two other innocent drivers, one of whom was injured enough to warrant a trip in the ambulance.
I’ve been informed that the camera which is directly above the incident out the front of the Toodyay Public Library does not work.
Therefore, vital footage required to prosecute the car thief is not available.Read more
This footage is being requested by people’s insurance companies and could have an effect on innocent people not being paid out.
Also of concern is if a child was harmed or taken from the skate park/Duidgee Park area, vital footage would not be on hand to assist authorities in tracking them.
I feel that these cameras need to be all operational 100 per cent of the time and available to the police and other authorities who require them.
We all pay a high amount of council rates and we all deserve to have operational CCTV cameras to keep us and our loved ones safe.
