Trams on Acland St, St Kilda.

Integrators Innotec, Convergint Technology and DyCom Wireless have won a contract to design and construct miscellaneous CCTV works for the City of Port Phillip in Melbourne.

The tender, which closed last December and was awarded this week and relates to a $A275,000 grant awarded to install cameras along Acland Street, while $33,000 in funding came from the Foreshore CCTV project. Camera locations have been selected by Victoria Police based on incident data.

There were 4 cameras installed in Stage One over the project, with Stage 2 cameras located on third party assets requiring additional consultation with asset owners and approvals. Meanwhile, Stage 3 will see 2 more cameras delivered subject to funding.

Cameras will be installed at the following locations:

Stage 1:

* Palais Theatre and Luna Park foreshore facing Cavell Street and Shakespeare Grove.
* St Kilda Life Saving Club facing the St Kilda Triangle carpark
* Talbot Reserve

Stage 2:

* Intersection of Acland Street and Carlisle Street
* Intersection of Acland Street and Shakespeare Grove
* Acland Street Plaza.

Stage 3 (subject to funding):

* Intersection Acland Street and Belford Street
* Intersection of Carlisle and Barkly Street.

Victoria Police will operate the cameras and monitor the system from the St Kilda Police Station. The management of the CCTV system is governed by a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Council and Victoria Police. Footage is stored at the St Kilda Police Station, only police have access and data will be written over after 30 days if no request has been made to view or access it during this period.
