Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 16 2008
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 17, 2008 NEWS Street cameras for safety CCTV cameras are being installed throughout Burwood as part of the council's safety project. So far 22 cameras have been erected and more are scheduled to be in place within months, as part of the CitySafe program which aims to reduce criminal and anti-social activity. NSW Council of Civil Liberties vice-president David Bernie said CCTV was not an intrusion on public privacy so long as cameras were used and con- trolled appropriately. ''We're not against having the cameras but we are concerned with the extent of the surveillance and con- trol; over what sort of ma- terial is collected and logged -- and not logged,'' he said. ''If they are being used for (the surveillance of) viol- ence and crime, that's not a bad thing.'' Burwood Council said the cameras were for tackling crime not for invading priv- acy. ''The cameras are con- nected to a central monitor- ing station located at coun- cil's offices, where they will be observed by CitySafe offi- cers in close liaison with Burwood Police,'' a council spokeswoman said. ''Signs have gone up and it's very clear where they are -- they're not hidden cameras,'' she said. Service station robberies linked CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 2 3 1 1 DETECTIVES in the Inner West are investigating two armed raids on ser- vice stations in the area last week. In the first incident, up to six men smashed their way through the front doors of the Mobil service station on Liverpool Rd, South Strathfield, about 12.30am on Friday, July 11. The offenders, who were wearing hooded jumpers and had their faces disguised, threatened the console operator with a hammer and wrench-type tool before steal- ing cash and cigarettes. One of the offenders punched the victim in the face causing minor injuries. The four men fled the scene in two blue and silver Nissan Skylines. Police from Flemington Local Area Com- mand and Forensic Armed Robbery Unit (FARU) attended the scene and interviewed the staff member. The same men are also believed to be responsible for a similar hold-up about 15 minutes later at the Metro service station on Liverpool Rd, Croydon, where the at- tendant was threatened by five men who then made off with cash and cigarettes. One of the vehicles used by the offenders was later found burnt-out at Drummoyne and has undergone forensic examination. Det-Sen Constable Mark Hamilton of Ashfield Local Area Command said CCTV footage and forensic results were being analysed and inquiries into both robberies were continuing. Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 2 Police have set up a special taskforce to track down an armed gang believed to have carried out two robberies on a Drummoyne hotel in late June. Metropolitan Robbery Unit's commander Det-Insp Mark Galletta said Strike Force Liddle would also explore links with other recent robberies in the Inner West. Armed with pistols, the gang held up staff at the Birkenhead Hotel on Lyons Rd on June 26 and stole cash from the safe. It is believed the same gang carried out a similar attack on the Birkenhead Hotel a few days later. Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 3 Police are asking for the public's help in finding an elderly woman missing from a Croydon nursing home since Monday. Josephine Daqua, 80, who suffers from a medical condition has not been seen since she left the Cheltenham Rd nursing home at about 1.30pm. She is described as being of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern appear- ance, fair complexion, 160cm tall, thin build, approximately 45-50kg. She has brown eyes and wears her white hair in a french bun. When last seen, she was wearing a white jumper and black pants. It is believed she may frequent the Petersham area and other Inner Western suburbs.
