Fairfield City Council has gone to tender seeking security and CCTV systems and maintenance for its Security Safety Camera System Renewal Programme.

Fairfield City Council is seeking tenders from organisations that have appropriate certifications, qualifications, capacity, experience and a high standard of capability which can deliver the best value for money in regards undertaking the Security Safety Camera (CCTV) System Renewal Programme – the project requires supply, installation and commissioning. Successful tenderers will be expected to undertake maintenance of Fairfield Council’s CCTV system and associated electronic security services for a contracted period.

Fairfield was one of the first council areas to install CCTV – the first cameras were installed in 1995 – and the council continues to expand and enhance the efficiency of the system, with improved cameras – primarily Axis Communications – that are managed in a way that requires less live monitoring. The latest additions are part of a multi-year $A1.4 million CCTV rollout.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said in 2016 when a number of new cameras were added to the system that Council was continuously increasing and improving its CCTV systems across the LGA.

“The 3 sites selected in the City Centre (for new cameras) target anti-social behaviour and crime hot spots and complement Council’s earlier installations,” Mayor Carbone said. “These include Fairfield Heights, Horsley Park, Cabramatta, Canley Vale and Canley Heights. In addition to this we also maintain mobile cameras, which can be located dependent on need.”

“Rollout of more CCTV will continue over the next year, focusing on delivering coverage of key gateways throughout the LGA as well as improving systems that help protect other Council Facilities and Assets.

“I am committed to making Fairfield a safer place for families and this is one of the steps we are taking to ensure Fairfield is a welcoming and safe place to live, visit and do business in.

Fairfield Local Area Command Superintendent Peter Lennon said at the time of that installation Fairfield police were extremely pleased to be working with Fairfield city council on another important crime reduction strategy.

“The new CCTV system introduced by council will provide both Council and police the opportunity to keep our city streets and open spaces safe,” Superintendent Lennon said.

Tenderers for the latest work must register their attendance – via email at procurement@fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au and the tender closes at 2.30pm AEST on Wednesday 13, February 2019.
