SECURITY (module code and student number) There has been significant growth in the use of closed circuit television (CCTV) in recent years. CCTV programs use surveillance cameras in both private and public area to curb personal and property crime. This has replaced police officers who have been patrolling streets preventing any criminal activity. There are claims that CCTV deters criminal activities and this is counterclaimed that CCTV only displace crime and it can do nothing more. CCTV is considered cheaper and costs effective than police officers although people feel safer when police are in patrol than the use of programmed cameras that records their daily lives. This paper evaluates these claims in relation to cost, privacy/ethnic, and criminal psychology. Installing a CCTV system is described as a cost-effective way of maintaining security. It is clear that once this system is installed, it becomes easier to manage since the minimal amount is needed for reparations. Use of CCTV is cheaper in deterring crime in the streets when compared to police officers. The study shows that a police officer requires a monthly salary that would end up to a tremendous amount of money to deter crime (Blevins, 2019). There are a lot of expenses that are experienced if we opt to use police personnel instead of CCTV. Additional cost such as buying and maintaining patrol vehicles is observed which is not the case if CCTV is used. There is no recurrent expenditure in the case of CCTV where only installation cost and less maintenance cost is experienced. It is very clear that a single person in the control room is capable of monitoring an area that might require a substantial number of police officers to patrol the area. This will significantly reduce the cost of deterring crime in the street.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
