About 30 CCTV cameras are on the cards for the sub- urb as part of a $200,000 project which will help deter crime and provide more accu- rate descriptions of offenders. If we do have a hold-up we can identify which direction they have gone, Onehunga Business Association town manager Amanda Kinzett says. The police can access the footage 24/7 and a security company will have access too. If the budget allows there will be someone watching the footage and we ll have a back- up power source. Ms Kinzett says the associ- ation will fund the bulk of the project with the help of grants and there has been a contribution from Auckland Council of about $40,000. She says that in stage one cameras will be placed in high priority areas including the bus stop. In stage two they will go into areas the public is uncomfortable to be in, like alleyways, and in stage three further cameras will go in. Community constable Don Allan is looking forward to the upgrades. CCTV is a totally invalua- ble resource. Having these cameras will help to identify offenders and help with pros- ecution. Sometimes when offenders leave the area we can t tell which way they are going. It s making sure the area is saturated. There s nothing worse than having CCTV cameras and no identi- fications. Mr Allan says the bus sta- tion will be monitored more closely and he recalls one occasion when almost 400 young people turned up in anticipation of a school fight. They were waiting for something to happen. But just a whisper and we re up here. It s a high youth hang- out area. Ms Kinzett is considering some positive events for the area such as sprinklers in the nearby carpark on hot days and organising a DJ to play. Mr Allan agrees it will be good to create a positive environment. We re trying to break down the barriers with youth. They can build up a stigma about police. The first of the cameras are scheduled to go in this month.
