CCTV cameras confirmed for next South Burnett town
WONDAI will be the next South Burnett town to receive state-of-the-art CCTV cameras.
The Lions Club applied for, and was successful in acquiring a grant for over $200,000 to provide state-of-the-art CCTV cameras for Queensland's tidiest town.
South Burnett Regional Councillor Ros Heit said the cameras would be a fitting addition to an all ready, 'very safe little town.'
"The cameras will be a great prevention of crime," she said.
"Hopefully if someone who is thinking of doing the wrong thing, this will prevent them."
She believed the cameras would also give a level of security and piece of mind to Wondai residents.
"There are quite a lot of elderly residents in Wondai and this will help them feel safe," she said.
The South Burnett councillor said the modern cameras would be of significant benefit to the Wondai police.
"All the images go straight to the Wondai police," Cr Heit said.
"Some cameras are face recognition and some are number plate recognition."
While the locations of the cameras were still to be confirmed,
Cr Heit confirmed there would be 33 cameras installed in 30 different locations throughout the town.
She said the Wondai CCTV cameras would be installed and functioning by Christmas.
