Projected camera surveillance increase after Boston bombings

Posted 30-06-13

The images of the terror caused by the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15th were shown around the world and the explosions that day have led to an increased demand for surveillance cameras in American cities. Little over two weeks after the bombs, it was stated in an article on the Bloomberg website that there were at least 233 security cameras covering Boston's 40-block Financial District.

Edward Davis, Boston Police Commissioner spoke emphatically in favour of greater surveillance in public areas in the aftermath of the attacks, urging more funding from Congress. He said: “These efforts are not intended to chill or stifle free speech, but rather to protect the integrity and freedom of speech and to protect the rights of victims and suspects alike.”

It was video surveillance that ultimately led to the identification of the suspected perpetrators Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan, and other cities are expected to heighten this aspect of their security as a result. Industry experts in the multi-billion-dollar security sector have predicted a rise in the level of surveillance across the US but the exact information related to this is often difficult to pinpoint. The extent of such security is usually not a detail that is accessible to the public but CCTV and video surveillance equipment is said to be worth as much as $3.2 billion in America. London has traditionally gained widespread attention, and often criticism, for its heavy use of surveillance but now it appears there could be a number of major cities following suit.
