Ocean Beach is definitely split over the issue of police surveillance cameras being installed along OB’s waterfront in the next few weeks.
The OB Rag ran a poll on the issue – actually two polls – one for OBceans and another for visitors – for a week. In the unscientific survey of our readers, a large majority in each poll favored the cameras.
But sizable minorities oppose the cameras.
In the first poll among OBceans, two-thirds favored the cameras while a third was opposed. With a total of 183 participants, 67.76% or 124 votes said they support them, while 32.24% or 59 votes opposed them.
It was closer in the second poll for visitors to OB. With 86 readers taking part, 59.3% ( 51 votes ) favored the cameras and 40.7% ( 35 votes ) did not.
