Dear Mr. Shaw Official Information Act Request
I refer to your request for information of 18 April 2018 where you requested the following
1)The number of CCTV cameras installed each of the main campuses (Kelburn, Pipitia
and Te Aro).
2)The number of CCTV and other security cameras installed across all properties owned
and operated by Victoria University of Wellington.
3) The number and locations of any CCTV and other security cameras installed on
property not owned by Victoria University which are still operated by Facilities
Please find below a table containing the information that you requested:
Number of CCTV cameras deployed by the University by location and building status
(owned and operated) as of May 2018:
258 21 51 16 346
0 0 12 108
258 21 63 124 466
Please note that the ‘other properties’ category includes locations which do not comprise
the three main University campuses, such as Park Road, Marine lab, Kitchener St, Marsden
Street 314TT, and includes the tw0 Halls of Accommodation (Weir House and Te Puni
Village) that Campus Safety manage the cameras for, as well as all the University Halls of
Accommodation that are operated by the University.
This data has been broken down into buildings which are owned and operated by the
University, and those that are leased or cameras deployed on land owned by the Wellington
City Council. These numbers do not include cameras owned, operated and deployed by our
vendors. However, the number does include cameras deployed by Campus Safety into
The actual numbers of cameras deployed constantly fluctuates as we endeavour to meet
demand/reduce risk and ensure proportionate and effective deployment. The number is
current for today only.
