Camera's can be used for good and evil - people with nothing to hide will not be threatened by them. They can help everyone if used correctly.

Crime has increased astronomically in eThekwini since Covid-19 landed in our country. I believe that a lot of syndicates are working in our city using the unemployed and destitute to do their dirty work. Where are the police in all of this?

For government to manage something like this is a joke.
Look at the SAPS. Falling apart.
Private companies would keep to the standards set out by POPIA.

We have a network of over 80 cameras in our area which is very effective if monitored
Donald

Actually, there should have been a provision for allowing a combination of private and government collaboration in erecting these cameras.
Beth
Yes I do
I feel more comfortable with private companies doing this than government. However private companies need to stand up to government more.

It May be good but with zero confidence in Government who knows what will be the result. Negative impact on privacy. Just another tool to facilitate crime

Anything that can assist the police will be of benefit.

I think it's too easy for these networks to be used for nefarious purposes and for data to be sold for data mining. This is huge business now. How do we know that the network does not use facial recognition etc? There's too much scope for abuse

We should use the technology at our disposal to curb and even eliminate crime.

In todays living you cannot in fear the whole time. That is why there are security firms the is helping us. The police are a lot of scary cats and they do not follow up on cases.

Despite assurances this infrastructure could easily be abused in future. This initiative will not work unless the police is better skilled and motivated to investigate crime. The significant privacy risks don't outweigh the potential benefits

What is stopping the government in taking it over after some time? They are attempting to take over private property right now as we speak!

And then they will use it against us, not the criminals. I have heard this much too often.

We already have cameras at various hot spots through our community group and the security companies in the area
