Echuca College is currently installing Closed Circuit Security Cameras as approved by School Council. Closed circuit television (CCTV) is a very effective crime prevention strategy that is a proven crime prevention tool. The use of CCTV also raises a number of legal, privacy and workplace relations issues which must be properly managed.
The installation of CCTV as an effective crime prevention strategy will cover areas of proven risk, whilst at the same time complying with our obligations and responsibilities to staff, students, Department of Education and the school community. Cameras will only be installed in external spaces, areas School Council has identified of serious vandalism, criminal damage and criminal offences.
