Ok, a bit out of the purview of your public locker system though.

One could, however, do key-card access cages with security cameras on a broader basis in city owned parking structures, and exclude those applicants with shoplifting (or similar) convictions.
You hit on the problem with cages; thievery among fellow cyclists. By the time you park and then strip down your bike of any/all accessories the convenience is just about gone.
