COVID-19 update:

As per the Premier’s announcement on Tuesday 7 July, we have been directed to move back to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions. Find out more about how this will impact Council services in our COVID-19 services update.

Our CCTV cameras

We operate CCTV systems at fixed locations throughout Glen Eira, on land and buildings that we own or control.

Why do we have CCTV cameras?

CCTV cameras help us manage our services, assets and facilities. We don't operate CCTV cameras for criminal law enforcement. If a law enforcement agency wants to install and operate a CCTV camera on our land, they need to contact us and seek our permission.

What do we do with footage and images?

We manage, use and store CCTV footage and images in accordance with our guidelines and policy, as well as laws including the:

  • Surveillance Devices Act 1999 (Vic)
  • Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic)
  • Public Records Act 1973 (Vic)
  • Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (Vic)
