    This was in the news last week

    British security cameras also catch commonplace offenses
    [LINK]


    Britain has 4.2 million surveillance cameras — 20% of the world's closed circuit cameras, according to the nation's independent Information Commissioners Office.
    There is a camera for every 14 people. An average Londoner is captured on camera 300 times a day, the office reported.

    Here's a quote from a book I'm reading.

    Very interesting. I was impressed watching BBC while in Prague last winter on how they tracked the young man who planted a bomb. He was caught on a number of surveillance cameras.

    Like most of life surveillance camers are both good and bad. I hope the good is greater than the bad.

    I wonder how many of these cameras China has. I bet a lot.

    There is no indication of which post on this thread you are replying to, so could you ellaborate slightly? What is "narus", and how do we do a search on it? Is it a search engine? If it is, what are you suggesting we search for on it? Thanks.

    I believe that he is saying that we should do a google search of "narus".

    NARUS comes up as a company that produces software for spying.
