Abstract

Last week's BBC Panorama documentary depicting the abuse of older people in a south London care home reignited the debate about whether CCTV should be installed in such settings. Those in favour argue that abuse would be prevented if the perpetrators feared being caught on camera. However, there is a long list of reasons why the introduction of such surveillance systems on a routine basis should be resisted.
