CCTV Security Subsidy

CCTV Security Subsidy

We are not currently accepting any new applications for the subsidy. Dates for future rounds will be advertised on this page web and the City of Kwinana social media channels.

The City of Kwinana is providing a subsidy for residents and business off the cost of new closed circuit television (CCTV) installations and / or Sensor Lights in the City that include a public angle field of view overlooking the road, footpath, front verge, or any other applicable public area.

This is a voluntary, opt in program for people who meet the terms and conditions of the program.

Closed circuit television (CCTV) can deter potential offenders from criminal activity and help with the detection, investigation, and prosecution of offenders.

The City of Kwinana has developed a subsidy program aimed at increasing the number of CCTV systems in strategic locations within the City. The subsidy aims to empower local residents and business owners to take ownership of their street and actively contribute to reducing crime.

Subsidy applications will be limited to one per household / business.

Before installation or upgrade of your CCTV system, please review the Terms and Conditions to verify that the desired setup will be eligible for the subsidy.
