Dock security a rising concern for Lake Lanier residents
Homeowners wish Corps of Engineers would allow surveillance cameras
Many dock owners on Lake Lanier would like to see the Corps of Engineers allow security cameras on docks.
Docks are sometimes the target of opportunistic thieves, and some Lake Lanier residents wish they could use surveillance cameras to monitor the belongings they keep by the lake just as they do the belongings in their home. “Theft is a common problem,” South Hall lake dweller Vicki Bentley said. “Life jackets, coolers, folding chairs, kayaks, canoes, fishing gear, gasoline and gasoline cans, and even soft drinks have been stolen from docks belonging to my family members over the decades.”
