Public street surveillance - a domain of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) - has grown enormously and become common place in our society as an all-purpose security tool. Previous authors have raised concerns over social, civil and privacy issues; however, there has been limited research to quantify such concerns. Nevertheless these concerns not only define the social risk perception of CCTV, but may also cause its social relocation and alter social support of CCTV. This book is essential reading for those interested in CCTV from a social, privacy or security aspect. There has never been such a publication that provided a definitive measure of the social issues of CCTV. The book is based on a study that applied a psychometric risk theory to a new public street CCTV surveillance system, measuring the social risk perception over a period of time. In addition, factors that may define and drive such social issues, social concerns with CCTV control and CCTV gender issues are discussed in-depth. The book demonstrates that CCTV may not have yet found its true social risk measure and that current social support may not necessarily be defined or robust.
