Kiama Municipal Council has a commitment to provide a safe and secure environment in the Kiama Local Government Area as a strategy of Kiama Municipal Council's Community Strategic Plan (1.6 - Recognise and promote community safety throughout the municipality).  Closed-circuit television (CCTV) can be utilised as a cost effective tool to assist in the maintenance of this environment. Therefore the objectives of the implementation of a CCTV system are:

  • promotion of community safety and crime prevention
  • protection of Kiama Municipal Council employees, residents and visitors
  • protect of Kiama Municipal Council assets
  • reduction in management costs via the remote monitoring of assets
  • protection of the environment

Kiama Council has installed two systems to assist in the above: one in the Kiama CBD and the other in the Gerringong CBD. Further information about these systems can be found on the Kiama CBD page and the Gerringong CBD page.
