The availability of surveillance cameras is more common and affordable for everyday citizens to own and this had led to an increase of purchases. CCTV cameras can be found at most home improvement stores and, therefore, people are installing it for their own purposes such as securing their house or private business. Problems arise when citizens misuse the surveillance and breech other’s right to privacy. The Daily Mail 2008 stated that “every one of 60 schools picked at random was found to be ignoring strict guidelines over the use of CCTV cameras – with one school even aiming cameras into a neighbor\’s back garden.” It is difficult to track down and put a stop to this misuse as it has become such as common practice to own one.Technology itself has become so advanced where “faces can be tracked half a mile away” Kampfner, 2012 and since CCTV cameras are so readily available, many take advantage and use it for their own amusement. There is no prevention in the amount of unauthorized data collected on individuals and this leads to cases where cameras are installed inappropriately. “For instance, according to the BBC, four council workers in Liverpool used a street CCTV pan-tilt-zoom camera to spy on a woman in her apartment.” Cavallaro,2007. This is just one case where culprits have been caught; however, there are still many common acts such as this. Another incident of inappropriate installation now has “Pennsylvania parents suing their son\’s school, alleging it watched him through his laptop\’s webcam while he was at home and unaware he was being observed.” Surveillance Camera Players, 2010. This leads to the misconception of surveillance, as it once was a tool to monitor and make sure citizens abide by the law, it has now created even more problems. With cameras only becoming more advanced and more common, it is difficult to determine whether these surveillance cameras are helping to ensure a safe society or leading to bigger issues altogether.
