Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance is one of the fastest growing areas in the security industry. This book is an essential guide for professionals involved the installation and maintenance of CCTV systems, system design, specification and purchasing and the management of CCTV systems. Unlike most existing books on CCTV, this title is not just a discussion of security issues, but a thorough guide to the technical side of the subject - cameras and monitors, video recording, cabling and transmission, installation and maintenance. The concise, accessible text makes it for hard-pressed practitioners and students on training courses. The second edition is fully dual-standard for PAL and NTSC systems. New material in the second edition covers lighting issues and equipment, digital signal transmission, integrated CCTV / intruder alarm systems, CAT5 cabling, digital recording, video printers, ancillary equipment, and a glossary. This book is recommended by SITO (the Security Industry Training Organisation, UK) as suitable for its courses, the City and Guilds 1851 programme, and the underpinning knowledge requirement of Level 3 NVQs from SITO / C & G. Joe Cieszynski is a well known magazine writer and a contributor to the SITO distance learning materials on CCTV. He has extensive experience in the industry and as a lecturer. * Demystifies CCTV technology for installers and managers * Concise, accessible text ideal for hard-pressed practitioners and students * Fully dual-standard coverage for PAL and NTSC based systems

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.

In many countries camera surveillance has become commonplace, and ordinary citizens and consumers are increasingly aware that they are under surveillance in everyday life. Camera surveillance is typically perceived as the archetype of contemporary surveillance technologies and processes. While there is sometimes fierce debate about their introduction, many others take the cameras for granted or even applaud their deployment. Yet what the presence of surveillance cameras actually achieves is still very much in question. International evidence shows that they have very little effect in deterring crime and in 'making people feel safer’, but they do serve to place certain groups under greater official scrutiny and to extend the reach of today’s ‘surveillance society’. Eyes Everywhere provides the first international perspective on the development of camera surveillance. It scrutinizes the quiet but massive expansion of camera surveillance around the world in recent years, focusing especially on Canada, the UK and the USA but also including less-debated but important contexts such as Brazil, China, Japan, Mexico, South Africa and Turkey. Containing both broad overviews and illuminating case-studies, including cameras in taxi-cabs and at mega-events such as the Olympics, the book offers a valuable oversight on the status of camera surveillance in the second decade of the twenty-first century. The book will be fascinating reading for students and scholars of camera surveillance as well as policy makers and practitioners from the police, chambers of commerce, private security firms and privacy- and data-protection agencies.
