195 The picture is not clear: How many CCTV surveillance cameras in the UK?

Author: Anonym/21 August 2015/Categories: Video Surveillance Systems (CCTV)

The typical report about CCTV tends to use language derived from dystopian visions of the future, such as “1984”, that play on preconceptions about the use by state or police controlled societies of spies in the community. It is on this basis that many studies and media reports about CCTV surveillance concentrate on the control of the proliferation of cameras, the cost of their maintenance and operation and whether they are successful or a waste of resource. CCTV cameras are frequently portrayed as an object of fear.

The major purpose of this document is to outline a set of methods that can be used in combination to produce an estimate of the number of cameras per property sector or to assist with correlation of other estimates.
