CCTV and Policing By Benjamin J. Goold (Fellow and Tutor in Law, Somerville College, University of Oxford)

Summary

CCTV and Policing considers how the introduction of closed circuit television (CCTV) has affected policing practices in Britain. Based on original field research, the volume examines the various factors that have shaped police CCTV use, and challenges claims that the spread of public area CCTV is indicative of a movement towards increasingly authoritarian forms of policing.

CCTV and Policing Summary

CCTV and Policing: Public Area Surveillance and Police Practices in Britain by Benjamin J. Goold (Fellow and Tutor in Law, Somerville College, University of Oxford)

CCTV and Policing is the first major published work to present a comprehensive assessment of the impact of CCTV on the police in Britain. Drawing extensively upon empirical research, the volume examines how the police in Britain first became involved in public area surveillance, and how they have since attempted to use CCTV technology to prevent, respond to, and investigate crime. In addition, the volume also provides a detailed analysis of the legality of CCTV surveillance in light of recent changes to the Data Protection Act and the incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights. Challenging many existing accounts of the relationship between the police and new surveillance technologies, CCTV and Policing breaks new ground in policing and surveillance theory, and argues that it is time for a major reassessment of both our understanding of how the police respond to technological change, and of the role played by such technologies in our society.

CCTV and Policing Reviews

CCTV and Policing is a rigorous piece of work that sheds fascinating light on a subject too little discussed, and it deserves to be read far outside the realm of academic criminology, especially by those concerned about civil liberties. * Times Higher Education Supplement *
