WOLLONGONG City Council will begin consultations with the community about the proposed installation of CCTV cameras in Helensburgh library.
Consultation will begin on 15 August and close on August 31. Library customers and the community can find out more about the installation of cameras either at the Helensburgh library or Council’s website.
Council currently has a policy on the use of CCTV cameras to ensure that libraries, community centres and other public spaces offer a safe environment for the community, while at the same time respecting privacy. Council has CCTV cameras in other buildings and centres, including libraries throughout the city. At many sites CCTV cameras are also used to assist in ensuring the safety of staff and property.
Prior to installing the cameras Council conducted a safety audit of the library with NSW Police, who recommended the installation.
For information on Council’s CCTV Policy and Code of Practice, visit Council’s website.
The community will also be able to view information on the proposed installation on Council’s Engagement website.
