Do we need CCTV?

Ambivalent on this point. The police and some residents say it works, but I feel some unease that it is unnecessarily invasive. At a time when so much information about us is public, do we need more of our movements recorded?

Question arose for me at the opening of the CCTV hub at Wellington Central Police Station. Thanks to our hosts, they are doing a very difficult job and obviously are just trying to use every tool that they have available.
