There are more CCTV cameras per person in the UK than anywhere else in the world, and there's a good chance you'll be caught on TV about 10 times a day.
Do you feel safer knowing that the streets are lined with cameras?
Do you think it's a good thing to help crack crime?
Or do you feel nervous knowing you can be watched almost everywhere you go?
And are you bothered you don't know just who's watching you?

I think CCTV is great if it can help catch criminals, it doesn't matter that much if we are watched!

I think that it is a great idea, it stops people from vandalising local schools and buildings.

They should help keep you safe but they only see who does it, they don't prevent it. This was proved by Damilola Taylor. It's a false sense of security!

There's just 2 many about. Its just a waste of money

It's quite weird thinking that anyone could be watching you, but if it does actually help fight crime then is it's fine by me.

I think there is enough CCTV. It's good cos it can help bring down crime! But I DO NOT want CCTV in my home or I can't be normal knowing that someone is always watching me...it's creepy!

CCTV is ridiculous! No one wants to be spied on all the time, do they?
They've blown this camera thing way out of proportion!

I don't think there are too many CCTV cameras about because if that's what it takes to stop crime I agree.

I think there are far too many CCTV cameras. How are people supposed to feel trusted anymore?

CCTV cameras make you feel safe. Even though you're being watched, it's keeping you safe and that's all that matters.

I think there is too much CCTV, because you don't want to be on CCTV wherever you go!
Charlotte, 11, Berkhamsted
I think putting up lots of CCTV cameras is a waste of money. I think it doesn't fight against crimes.
Cozy, 13, Manchester
Yes, it does make you feel safe, but it's strange to feel you're being watched.
Hannah, 13, Ipswich
No, I think it really invades people's privacy. I think it is good to crack down on crime, but having it in people's bathrooms isn't a good idea. I am bothered.

I think it's a good thing if it helps to fight crime.
