CCTV fiasco

Det Ch Insp Mike Neville has called CCTV usage in UK a fiasco. In 1994 I warned against the unthinking application of CCTV to all crime (letalone social) problems instead of being part of a strategy. Home Office research appears to confirm this and I wrote again about it recently on the money that has been wasted.
