Implementations of CCTV
Closed-circuit television, aka video surveillance, has always been under debate, either people are all for it or they see it as an invasion of privacy. There is no way around them anymore, whether you feel safer with them around or not they are everywhere.
How is CCTV Used for Surveillance?
Not all CCTV is equal. It seems like cameras are always watching and waiting to report your every move. Some are, like traffic cameras that catch violations and parking lot monitoring. But most importantly, cameras are around to help us feel safe. As much as they help fight crime, they help prevent it. Just the suggestion of a camera, even if it doesn’t work, can deter criminals.
