Security Camera Program CCTV

There are CCTV cameras mounted throughout Frankston City with footage streamed back to the Frankston Police Station or monitored by authorized Frankston Council employees. The vision is used for either live monitoring or reviewed by investigators as part of a criminal enquiry.

Council’s Community Safety team works closely with Frankston Police to identify sites for the new cameras, based on the location of incidents the police have had to attend.

Council’s CCTV program has been hugely successful in improving residents’ feelings of safety and security as well as assisting Victoria Police in responding to crime.

The Frankston City Council CCTV program has been supported by State and Federal Government via numerous grant programs.

Generally footage is only available to Victoria Police for privacy reasons. If footage is required by the public a Police report is required to be completed and the investigating Police Officer will be able to advise if the footage is available.
