Partnership places 75 security cameras across four City park locations

Purchase & installation agreement realized between City and Hawai‘i Tourism Authority

O‘AHU -- A partnership between the City and County of Honolulu and the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority (HTA) aims to enhance security across four City park locations through a joint effort to install 75 security cameras.

The cameras are primarily located on the exterior of comfort station buildings (bathrooms) at the following City park locations:

  • Kūhiō Beach Park
  • Kapi‘olani Regional Park/Paki Community Park
  • Foster Botanical Garden
  • Ala Moana Regional Park

The City paid for the cost of the cameras, approximately $38,800, while HTA covered the cost to install the cameras, approximately $204,000. The City will also be responsible for the maintenance and data retention of the cameras.

"In our experience, these kind of security cameras have proven to be excellent tools to help create more secure public areas and also to deter vandalism and other criminal activity," said Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation Director Laura H. Thielen. "The areas chosen to receive these cameras are our most popular locations anecdotally, and we want to assure the public that the cameras' view cannot be remotely adjusted and are not aiming into any private areas of our bathroom facilities. A big mahalo to HTA for their help and contributions to this partnership."

This partnership effectively triples the numbers of surveillance cameras at City park locations. Prior to this project there were 33 security cameras already in place at seven City park locations.

The original agreement called for 192 cameras to be installed at 13 park locations. However, once the individual park sites were assessed, including access to a wireless network, the budget was not sufficient to reach that original goal.
