The latest lock out kits for the city have come in handy for the more vulnerable in Phoenix, as they have helped reduce homelessness and cut crime in the area.
A spokeswoman for the City of Phoenix said the city had bought 622 kits from two different manufacturers, one of which was the company that had designed the lock out device.
“We’ve seen it in use at least 15 different locations across the city and that’s a huge success,” she said.
The kits are designed to reduce the time and cost of obtaining a new lock out ticket, and also provide a better alternative to the long-term lock out, when people are unable to get into a building because of lack of space.
In the first six months of the year, the city received 761 lock out tickets and the most expensive ticket was $100.
Since the new lockouts began in April, there has been an increase in people applying for the new locks, Ms Rundle said.
“In the same time, the number of people who have applied for a lock out has increased by around 100 per cent,” she added.
Police also used the lockouts as an opportunity to raise money for a new bike lock for people who were unable to park their bikes.
As of the end of the first quarter of the financial year, police had collected $15,719 in proceeds from the lock outs.
Mr Rundle and Mr Tappe are keen to see the lockout device adopted by the rest of the community, she said, and would be looking to get one out to the rest, especially older people.
“I think people in their 70s or 80s are going to be the most affected by this,” he said.
The lockouts are being offered free of charge, and the city has put in a Request for Proposals to encourage the development of a new one.
