Statement From The City Of Perth

The City is trialing camera analytics software to improve community safety and to assist urban decision making for future infrastructure and planning requirements. For example, placement of bins, footpaths, public amenities and transport solution.

Facial recognition will only be activated upon request from a lawful authority such as WA Police. The City follows the Surveillance Devices Act 1998 as part of its current CityWatch operations. Intended outcomes include reducing response times to community safety concerns, locating missing people, children or persons of interest to Police.
