Where necessary, the recorded footage will be used to assist with law enforcement operations, investigate complaints, prevent criminal activity, and ensure the safety of Council officers and the security of Council facilities.

Does Noosa Council share the footage with anyone?

Where necessary to prevent serious harm to public welfare or safety, or to assist with criminal investigation or crime prevention activities, Noosa Council may disclose footage captured by surveillance cameras to the Queensland Police Service and other law enforcement agencies. Where footage contains personal information about an individual (as that term is defined in the Information Privacy Act 2009 (QLD)), legal authority for such use and disclosure of the footage is contained in the Information Privacy Principles, contained in Schedule 3 to the Information Privacy Act 2009 (QLD).
