Security Surveillance and Control

The world is fast becoming a dangerous place and there are no greater dangers then those that can take place in areas where we feel most safe. The public arena is a common ground that all of us share on a day to day basis. It’s the place we work, do our shopping, enjoy our hobbies and spend the majority of our time communing with others with similar interests and needs. But what is happening to this space we share so readily. What has become of the America of the past, when the thought of a dangerous consequence occurring would have been the furthest thing from our minds. The thought of having armed guards in our schools, and churches, parks and recreational areas, transit hubs, commercial buildings other than banks, retail stores and even at social events a few years ago would have been an anomaly. We as a society only had to be concerned about the occasional thief stealing an item or a petty crime happening to our person. No one thought about the fact that they might not return home safely in the evening, after leaving home in the morning. Wow has this world changed and not for the better. Today we have been forced to add two security ingredients into our day to day activities with many questions left unanswered about our right to privacy and the collective good of where all this will end. Law enforcement has concurred that security for all can only be achieved if the public is willing to except a certain amount of scrutiny and surveillance. The needs of the many out weight the needs of the few.

Armored Guards and Security Cameras

How much government surveillance and scrutiny we can tolerate is directly proportionate to how safe do we currently feel and how much presence does it take to keep us relatively safe. Security cameras have always been a useful tool in monitoring the environment we live in. But having the ability of what modern technology has brought us means being able to broadly sweep large areas of any given area and making visible, any activity that anyone is engaging in, including the ability to hear conversations between unsuspecting citizens from long distances. No longer is the simple fixed security camera a means of viewing portions of a field of view. Some say this is an invasion of privacy, while others are quite content that these types of devices are necessary in the world of today. This technology has even been expanded to identify traffic violations like speeding and running red lights, patterns of congestion and areas where road improvements are necessary. But nowhere has it caused as much controversy then when it affects are daily live. A brave new world of behavioral enforcement many feel is too controlling.
