Comments Off on CCTV can monitor more effectively than bobby on the beat

TV news report CCTVA brief local television news item demonstrated that unasserted facts are flying around concerning CCTV cameras. The feature, broadcast from the Midlands, repeated often-stated but rarely checked statistics like there are four and a half million cameras in total; and that there is one camera for about every 15 people in the United Kingdom. On the former point – since no official body has in fact counted them, we just do not know.

Another source of confusion is the Information Commissioner’s 2006 report which stated “a person can be captured on over 300 cameras each day”. The media – ITV Central East actually increased this figure to 330 – reword this as “the average person is”, rather than the original, “a person can be”.
