The Watch Tower will see police personnel on duty round the clock. Its height and position allowing them views of outlying areas of the Lake, delivering increased safety to the local populace. The closed-circuit television cameras strategically placed around the Lake ensure highest levels of monitoring, a necessity, given the high number of tourists, families and children visiting and enjoying the amenities at the Lake.
