WA Government to secure judicial officers' homes

Department of the Attorney General will deploy CTV cameras, video intercom systems, and security monitoring systems

The Western Australia Department of the Attorney General has declined to comment on a new initiative that will see security systems, including CTV cameras and video intercom systems installed in the homes of judicial officers.

The initiative sees the installation of a range of security devices including security monitoring system, and portable panic button and duress alarm.

A spokesperson for the Department of the Attorney General declined to comment on the roll out, claiming that the agency “did not comment on security matters.”

It is not understood whether the systems are to secure particular judicial officers, such as high-profile judges, or a wider range of the state’s at-risk legal system staff.

Despite this, the Department has made public two different diagrams illustrating potential security scenarios for one- and two-storey residences.
