More needed

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

I com­pletely agree with Mr Ross’ com­ments about the need for more se­cu­rity cam­eras along the main street. Al­though I am not a busi­ness owner, I fre­quently walk along the main street early on a Sun­day morn­ing as I take my dog for a walk. The state of the street some morn­ings is ap­palling, with rub­bish, bot­tles and some­times even vomit vis­i­ble on the street. Not a good look for Alexandra, al­though I must ad­mit, it seems to get cleaned up pretty quickly (by the busi­ness own­ers them­selves I suspect). While I hope the bur­glar­ies were a one­off in­ci­dent, I be­lieve cam­eras would be use­ful in try­ing to stamp out other an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour which seems to go on af­ter a night out drink­ing by some peo­ple. A cam­era around the pie cart and mu­seum area would also be use­ful as I’ve no­ticed dam­age on the mu­seum signs and what looks like urine stains on the sculp­ture lo­cated near the round­about. I’m sure it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore the brand new ten­nis courts prove to be a temp­ta­tion for would-be van­dals.

So yes, let’s get some more cam­eras in­stalled and stamp out this dis­gust­ing be­hav­iour once and for all.
