Awards

  • Shortlisted for British Society of Criminology Book Prize 2005.
  • Winner of Shortlisted for the British Society of Criminology Prize 2005.

Overview

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.Readership: Legal academics, criminologists, sociologists and civil libertarians concerned with surveillance and social control, as well as those working in police studies. Of interest to legal academics concerned with questions of human rights, constitutional law, public law, and criminal evidence. Also perhaps of interest to senior police administrators, local government officials, crime prevention agencies, and sections of the private security industry engaged in public area surveillance.

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
