Security cameras for central Dunedin

5:19 pm on 14 April 2010

Security cameras are likely to be installed in Dunedin's central city by the end of this year in a bid to deter disorder and violent offences.

The Dunedin City Council says the plan to install CCTV cameras has been in the pipeline for several years and it has finally obtained funding.

Council customer advocate Adrian Blair says it is discussing the installation schedule with a contractor and expects the timeframe will be known within a fortnight.
