From time to time the Dunedin Police and Campus Watch are found wasting our tax dollars and student fees by using their resources to try and catch students in the act of smoking cannabis instead of focusing their efforts on solving real crime.
Thankfully a number of historical high profile incidents seem to have tought these agencies the lesson that the public thinks their time could be better spent ... at least for now.
This page is where we will keep track of overreach and abuses of power where it regards these two agencies interactions with Otago Students.
