City Council to vote on APEC video monitoring system

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu City Council is expected to take action on a controversial video monitoring proposal leading up to the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation conference in November.

The Honolulu Police Department wants to install 34 surveillance cameras in Waikiki, Downtown and Ko Olina.

The cameras are supposed to provide more security at the cost of nearly $1.5 million.

Some people question whether the safety benefits are outweighed by an invasion of privacy.
