Initially a project of the Melville Residents’ Association, the Melville Security Initiative was founded in 2009 with its primary goal of maintaining & implementing security solutions for the safety and security of the community and all who reside and operate businesses within its boundaries.

The Melville Security Initiative is managed by residents of Melville. They volunteer their time and expertise to maintain and improve security in the suburb. The initiative employs, amongst other suppliers, Beagle Watch to provide security in conjunction with VumaCam.
