Crime prevention is one of our highest priorities, and as a result we have portable CCTV units affectionately known as "Oscar" to target identified areas in the community 24-hours a day, seven days a week.  

Oscar continuously patrols key identified areas in Altone and Ballajura and helps police prevent crime by gathering footage. To cover all bases, the footage taken by Oscar is relayed to the City's security centre, as well as to the local police station.

A special television presentation titled Safety in our Suburbs aired on Channel 9 in 2013 which featured "Oscar". A copy of our segment can be viewed below.

The City of Swan is committed to working with local Police to ensure that our communities are safe and secure.
