Nanango pioneers new CCTV technology
NANANGO is pioneering the latest technology in CCTV systems which were unveiled on Friday at the Nanango Police station.
Thanks to the hard work from the Nanango Safe City Program and the Heritage Nanango Community Fund, 15 CCTV cameras have been set up around the Nanango area.
Sergeant Brett Smith is confident the cameras will make his team's job a lot easier.
"The cameras have been strategically placed over the traffic lights and in other busy areas of town,” Sergeant Smith said.
Steve Cook and Stephen Carter from Kingaroy Security Patrol said the cameras were state of the art.
"These cameras give the police a 360 degree view from each unit. They have a 30 times optical zoom, which means you could see a vehicle's license plate number from the other end of town,” Mr Cook said.
"This technology is the first of it's kind and Nanango is the first police station to utilise this technology,” Mr Carter said.
