It said this follows a crime prevention council meeting in November.

It said it had been established that preventing delinquency within the school environment was a major point for action for French Polynesia and the French state.

The cost of the cameras is in excess of $US1 million, with the French Polynesian and the French governments sharing the expenditure.
