Welcome to the
ASSESSMENT OF TOWN CENTRE CCTV SCHEMES
The immediate assumption for any camera scheme, is that its design and implementation has been carried out correctly; after all, if a large sum of money has been spent on a 'state of the art' installation, the last thing anyone wants, is someone coming along and pointing out all the mistakes that have been made.
Politicians (in particular) love to champion the cause of CCTV, without really having the remotest idea what it is they're talking about. CCTV is good ..... so we must have more of the same!
Let's take a look at a fairly simple, but hopefully useful comparison; Imagine if you will, that better public transport was proposed for a town, using a significant investment in the very latest design of vehicles.
You probably don't need to be a genius to work out that the buses, probably provide a more efficient transport service, by a factor of around 200:1.
So how exactly does this relate to the current thinking on the widespread use of CCTV in Town Centres, up and down the country.
