A connected CCTV network will not prevent violent crime, it will only possibly record it. What South Africans need is to uphold the right to self-protection against violent crime. State officials should be held accountable when they undermine the right of South Africans to self-defence, either by disarming the general public, restricting gun ownership or prosecuting the innocent for protecting themselves.

If you pay levy or tax on your property, you can pay as little as R50 to a private company3
To maintain and uphold the camera's. We need these camera's. This is not only for one persons safety but the whole area. Cameras do not harm anyone and will not envade your privacy

I agree that the cctv technology can be a deterrent for criminals. I do, however, believe that the installation and maintenance of the infrastructure should be at the government's expense, as it should be THEIR responsibility to ensure a safer environment for the citizens. I'm also not 100% convinced that these cctv cameras could not end up being used to FACILITATE crime. Paid enough of a bribe, a residents movements could be leaked to a syndicate, similar to how the weakest link to a SECURITY estate is the guard at the entrance gate - a bribe for him to open the gate and look the other way is what causes crime in SECURITY estates to still happen.

These installations certainly work! Recent removal of such an installation saw the absoluut increase in crime and tis is now becoming even worse.

I already have CCTV cameras on my property. They are a deterrent to criminals and by linking them to my cell phone I am able to check out my property before I enter.
Privacy is of no use when you are dead. I value my privacy but I would rather be safe

I believe that if anyone needs that kind of security they should install it for themselves, the government is not trying to control crime , their totally invading our privacy.
