CCTV Cameras in our town centre
Avondale Mainstreet is committed to providing a safe working environment for businesses; a safe home for town centre residents; and a safe shopping experience for you!
In 2022, the association installed phase one of its CCTV camera project with cameras stationed at 10 sites throughout the mainstreet. It will endeavour to increase this coverage in the coming few years.
Having CCTV in Avondale assists with crime prevention; gathering evidence of crime and evidence of health and safety issues. The cameras record 24/7 and footage is stored for 28 days. Note, NZ Police has live access to the cameras through the SaferCity grid connection for emergency purposes, but not the ability to record.
