Smile, you’re on Candid Camera

by | Apr 15, 2014 | Business

Roughly three hundred times a day we can be sure we have been caught on camera, whether we like it or not. Of course, that only applies to huge places like London, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff, among a few others, but in general, we might be caught at least fifty times anywhere else in the United Kingdom.

Oftentimes people want to be famous, but the kind of fame associated with being caught by a CCTV access control in Guildford officer is not most people’s idea of the notoriety they wanted. CCTV is one of the most popular ways that people have of preventing crime, deterring crime or catching crime. We see CCTV cameras on the outside of many buildings and inside many of the same buildings and other buildings. Banks, schools, building societies, prisons and many other places of business or public service have CCTV cameras. They are there for the protection of the people inside and outside of those places and we cannot, in today’s society, do without them.

Give us a smile

Regardless of whether we want to be famous we are on TV more times than we care to wonder about. Every time we go to the supermarket we know that somewhere in the ceiling there is a team of people—or at least one person—watching our every move. The same applies to a casino, a bank and many schools. They are all conscious of the fact that people are less trustworthy these days and even if they are not proven to be less trustworthy as a society, we use the cameras as a cushion to protect ourselves from potential harm, burglary or just to prove the whereabouts of a possible suspect. The cameras can trace people’s movements if they are caught on enough of the cities cameras. They can see exactly where a journey began and where it ended. In kidnap cases the cameras are often the best evidence the police have to refer to in order to trace the last known whereabouts of someone. Cameras, despite their unfavorable reputation among most people, do serve a sincerely good purpose and, basically, the rule of thumb is that if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.
