To CCTV or not to CCTV? A review of current research into the effectiveness of CCTV systems in reducing crime

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The extent of CCTV coverage and the government's funding of new systems has increased dramatically over the last decade. There is very little substantive research evidence, however, to suggest that CCTV works. This briefing note has been written to inform community safety practitioners about recent research into the effectiveness of CCTV, which suggests that it is not always as successful at reducing crime as it is claimed to be.
