Big Brother Techniques Fail

Surveillance does not stop crime – that’s according to a report from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention.

Currently there are approximately 2100 permits for surveillance cameras in Stockholm alone, a number which increases by 10% every year.

According to an article in the Stockholm City newspaper the results were based on over 40 different research reports from four different countries.

The only place where surveillance was found to have a significant impact was in car park stations where crime had fallen by 51% after surveillance was introduced.
