CCTV policy adopted

Whakatāne District Council has adopted an Electronic Surveillance (CCTV) Policy that will enable greater use of CCTV cameras for crime prevention and identification of offenders, as well as for the ongoing monitoring of Council assets.

The Policy was adopted by the Council’s Policy Committee on 29 June and followed the consideration of submissions from the Whakatāne-Ohope Community Board, the Murupara Community Board and one individual submitter, all of which were in support of the policy.

The two key elements of the policy will enable CCTV cameras to be used in deterring crime and for identification, while the current restrictions allowing cameras only in high-crime zones will be removed. This will enable more strategic placement of cameras, for example at the entrance and exit points of towns.

In addition, cameras can now be used to better monitor and manage Council assets and facilities; and to enhance public safety and reduce vandalism.
