Surveillance Camera Day on 20th June 2019Ahmet
Surveillance Camera Day is a national event to encourage a conversation about the use of surveillance cameras in modern society. It will take place on 20 June 2019.
It is being organised by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s office in conjunction with the Centre for Research into Information, Surveillance and Privacy (CRISP).
The day is one of the deliverables of the civil engagement strand of the National Surveillance Camera Strategy and is intended to raise awareness about surveillance cameras and generate a debate about how they are used in society.
Of particular importance, is the pressing need for a nationwide conversation about how camera technology is evolving, especially around automatic face recognition and artificial intelligence and how surveillance cameras are actually used in practice, why they’re used and who is using them. This conversation is important, because we are all captured by the gaze of the camera lens and because surveillance camera systems are meant to be delivered in the public interest – to keep communities safe and secure.
We will be live streaming our CCTV installation on that day, as well as being on hand to answer any questions you may have via our Facebook page.
