ECID Camera Network Upgrade-Progress Report

The Epping CID has over the past few months been busy with the upgrades of the cameras and network. The upgrade process is currently 85% complete, with the exception of a few problematic sites. Although we are not running at 100%, we are in the process of utilising the cameras we have at our disposal to assist in the process of crime fighting. Already we have had a few positive results.

We will continue to provide feedback on the progress of the network.

ECID CAMERA NETWORK UPGRADE

Good Day

The camera upgrade is underway, however at this point the system is not operational due to unexpected challenges.

During this period, the ECID Board has authorised the deployment of additional foot patrols on the rail tracks, increasing the compliment from four to eight foot-patrollers. This is over and above the already existent quad-bike patrols. The deployment of these additional patrols commenced on the 1 September and will continue up to 31 October, where at which time the situation will be reviewed.

Whilst we at the ECID are striving on a daily basis to continue providing an efficient service, the upgrade process is ongoing and we will continually provide regular updates. 

Please take into consideration that we remind all owners and tenants that individual site security is for your account.
