Over-Observed? What is the quality of CCTV in this new digital legal world?

  Much research and debate has focussed on the value of CCTV and the associated criminological
aspects such as whether crime is reduced, or simply displaced, by its use. The aim of this paper is
not to enter into this debate, but to examine the evidential value of the new digital technologies
accompanying the CCTV phenomenon. Likewise, the civil liberties and human rights issues relating
to the over-observation of our brave new world have been raised and discussed widely in many fora
and do not require further examination in this context.
