City of Stonnington is a local government area located within the metropolitan area of Melbourne comprising the inner south-eastern suburbs. Council recently implemented a mobile camera trailer to its complement existing CCTV coverage.

At the time, Stonnington Mayor Cr Steve Stefanopoulos said the camera trailer will be deployed by Victoria Police for both active and passive monitoring.

“By its very nature, trailer-mounted CCTV is more flexible than the fixed operation (the trailer can be moved to where it is most needed at the time) and this greater mobility will lead to greater responsiveness,” Cr Stefanopoulos.

The Mayor said Stonnington was ever vigilant in staying ahead of the game when it came to the safety and wellbeing of residents.

“Nothing is more important to us than the people we are here to serve,” Cr Stefanopoulos said. “They need to be able to walk the streets and go about their business with confidence that they are being looked after.”

The tender for CCTV and access control support closes October 28.
