Some Thoughts On CCTV In Australia

Recently I’ve been reading the various articles and blog posts on the CCTV Australia website. Some of the material seems a little odd, and the information that is provided can sometimes be misleading or off-putting. The site seems to promote and market some pretty aggressive surveillance equipment. It seems to me that many of the comments and posts are from people who are selling something rather than trying to educate others.

What Make Cctv Australia Don’t Want You To Know

In one article in particular I read where the author felt that CCTV was actually an invasion of privacy. Yet another police officer, whom I’ve had the opportunity to speak with on many occasions, also seems to have this same view. There are times when I personally agree with what an individual opines, but when it intrudes upon someone else’s privacy, then I have a problem with it. And there is a high degree of hypocrisy involved in these types of comments because we know for a fact that CCTV cameras are being used for many different purposes. We have all seen the images of the shoplifters who seem to be preoccupied with non-stop stealing of goods from stores.

But what I find the most disturbing about all this is all the myths and misinformation that gets passed around. I know a lot of people, both criminals and law abiding citizens, believe that CCTV Australia is a very good thing, because it keeps shoplifters and other violent criminals from the public eye. I also know a number of people who feel the same way about CCTV in the U.K. Perhaps the biggest myth about CCTV in Australia is that it’s going to keep you safe from terrorism. I can tell you from personal experience that CCTV in this country isn’t a solution in itself; it’s part of a comprehensive solution that includes security guards, bodyguards and so on. So if you want to protect your family, your home and your possessions from crime, then you need to be vigilant and take precautions.
