Are Cables Inside Poles Against Code?

Question of the day: I have a number of IP POE cameras to be mounted on existing light poles. Closest is 350' and the furthest is 450'. My electrical guy tells me he will not run any cable (presumably copper) inside the pole due to Code issues. It's an easy trench and an easy microwave shot (multi-point to point w good line of sight). What would you do? If you wanted to run copper cable, what cable would you use?
