Camera networks that are properly run and monitored have been proved to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour dramatically. Government do not have the funds or resources to equip, setup and monitor camera networks so the task falls to private companies to get involved and help communities to get involved and help reduce crime and improve their local areas.
Neighbourhood watches already exist in most areas and can be used as a force multiplier to help uplift communities and reduce crime and anti social behaviour. Working together we can ensure positive results and reduce the criminal behaviour dramatically.

Based on safety and the successful prosecution of criminal individuals, I support the idea.
However, doubting the integrity and honesty of whomever controls the footage and interpretation thereof is concern.
Also, is our police/legal judicial able, committed to justice? So much corruption in those departments, that it might also just be a waste of time and funds.

It works in other countries so why not here - let's learn from those who know

I support extra measures to security being provided but the contraptions should not be placed in the gardens of private homes.
They should not be unsightly and should not ever encroach on one's privacy.

Qualifications:
As long as facial recognition is not included as it is well known that it incorrectly recognises many people especially if non caucasian.
Companies must be subject to Section 9 oversight and audits
Data can only be handed over with a court warrant to prevent "pre crime" profiling by law enforcement.

In our case you are damned if you object and damned if you agree because the state cannot be trusted with this type of information, not just here, but also in UK and USA, and no doubt other countries.

if its private we know it will be managed properly. leave it to the government and there will be tender fraud and bribes. if we don't look after ourselves no-one will

In public areas especially crime hotspots and where kids frequent, but unfortunately most of legislation is abused is sold to privately on the black markets. As well our politicians who have the authority are a proven lot of greedy money sucking motives, continued tender fraud and stealing looting of SA's coffers destroying our country. Sadly I have no confidence in anything they propose and truthfully feel it is ALL FOR THEIR PERSONAL GAIN.

Even in theory it may seem prospective but no skills in personal to effect this.

Crime is definitely on the increase and will certainly continue for the foreseeable future. It is of utmost importance that we as a neighbourhood take steps to prevent and decrease the crime in our areas.

preferable the monitoring of the cameras shouldn't only be done by private security companies, government has to be involved as well.

this won't solve the crime problem in SA.

Unfortunately the current government is unable or unwilling to perform their duty to protect the citizens of this crime riddled country. Perhaps because they lead by example. Furthermore, the police force is useless and corrupt, criminals themselves to a large extent. Also, government has proven that it is unable to maintain ANY form infrastructure.
We, the citizens have the right to defend ourselves, and CCTV monitoring, maintenance of infrastructure and response by private security companies is our best option at this point.
I suggest that due to the failings of this government, on so many levels, they should foot the implementation and running cost of such a project.

i WOULD HONESTLY PREFER THAT IT WERE NOT NECESSARY, BUT SINCE WE HAVE A POLICE FORCE THAT CANNOT COPE WITH ALL THE CRIME IN OUR COUNTRY AND THAT MANY DO NOT TRUST EVEN SO, I FEEL THAT WE MAY STAND A BETTER CHANCE WITH THE CCTV FOOTAGE. ALTHOUGH, GOODNESS KNOWS, THIES WILL COME UP WITH SOME WAY OF USING IT AGAINST INNCOCENTS EVEN SO, IN MY OPINION. SO FROM THE FAT INTO THE FRYINGPAN, BUT I THINK I RATHER HAVE THE FAT SIZZLING ON CCTV THAN JUST HAVING THE FAT FLOATING AROUND.

SO MANY OF US ALREADY HAVE CCTV IN OUR HOMES, PERHAPS YOU COULD USE OUR PRIVAT EONES TO CUT THE COST. BUY THE CAMERA THE PRIVATE PERSON HAS THAT FACES THE ROAD, YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND ENTIRE SUBURBS ARE ALREADY COVERED.
