A while back I was watching 20/20 and they were doing a program on placing cameras all over the place in the big cities. A town in...France I think it was already adapted the system and crime has been down ever since. I started thinking that having cameras all over the place wasn't that bad of an idea. Certainly crime would lessen if not die out completely and I think the only people that would have a problem with it have some kind criminal intent in mind.

Your thoughts on this...

yeah, i live in the 3rd largest city in england (MANCHESTER) sorry it's the best!
we have camera's everywhere in the city centre, it's definately a good idea but you know some people hate the thought of people in a room watching them on camera, it definately helps keep crime down, although it does have it's downsides too.

i think for me though, all in all, it's definately a good thing

The saying goes, if you having something to hide, then it's most probably illegal.

Frankly speaking, deploying security cameras for survillence in public areas is like placing a policeman or security there for 24/7 duty.

However it certainely would be a breech of privay if they insisted on placing a camera in everyone's homes.

this idea is double plus good!

I believe it's a good idea to install security cameras it makes the public feel
a little safer.

BTW: Installing security all over the city is not as bad as what they are doing in
Jamaica.

Quote by MagArticleThe people of Jamaica might be ahead of the rest of the world in struggling with this very issue: That country's government has proposed creating a biometrics-based national registration system. Citizens would be required to submit their personal information and fingerprints to a national database accessible by every governmental agency, from the police to
the tax collector's office, to the national health insurance department.

Never heard of this "french town"... not that I know everything that happens in France... but I think it's more likely that this town is Monaco, a really special place that is associated with France.

After all this is a touristic place with lot of banks, casino... a high-standart place.

I think it's ok to put some important places under camera security but not everywhere. Rules are also important to prevent that anyone use it for not good reasons. Even if we don't do anything harmful, we can do something embarassing, right ?

Cameras are a good idea, but not everywhere. Only important places or areas where crime is on a high level should have this kind of security. I wouldn't want to be watched everywhere I go, even if I don't have anything to hide.

up up and away

Yeah but problem is that crimes will move and criminals will act in other places, where there are no or not a lot of cameras...so it is not bad to think about installing many cameras.
But ilke kyoo69 says, it is not everyone who would like to be always watched when you'Re into town...
should find a better way to increase security...

Well, life depends on AAYAA

well this would reduce crime, and it sounds like a good idea
so why not

Being constantly watched by a security camera do takes away personal privacy, but
what other type of security measures can they use to reduce crime?

Implant GPS or RFID tags into each person and monitor
everyone by satellites?
Of course not.

Security camera is probably the best measure.

And when it comes to a trial.
A video is the best evidence.

sometimes it seems like we trade privacy for security
but hey nothing's really free in the world, right?
i like my privacy, thank you very much, but at the same time I would rather feel safe, too.

1984.... read it recently, yup we are monitored 24/7 but i doubt the government is keeping tabs on certain people, but all of us in general in the US are monitored for security reasons, they wanna know who is stealing and so on.

I think street cameras is a great idea. Putting cameras in private homes I definately don't agree with.
