The City of Stirling is providing rebates of 30 per cent (up to a maximum of $500) off the cost of new closed circuit television (CCTV) installations in the City that include a public angle field of view overlooking the road, footpath, front verge, or any other applicable public area.
Closed circuit television (CCTV) can deter potential offenders from criminal activity and help with the detection, investigation, and prosecution of offenders. CCTV can also increase people’s perceptions of safety and their use of public places.
The City of Stirling has developed a rebate program aimed at increasing the number of CCTV systems in strategic locations within the City. The intent of the CCTV rebate is to encourage private residents and businesses to install an effective CCTV system and create a partnership between the applicant and WA Police to address crime and safety problems through visual surveillance.
Rebate applications will be limited to one per household.
Before installation or upgrade of your CCTV system, applicants should review the Terms and Conditions (below) to verify that the desired setup will be eligible for rebate through this program.
