Surveillance has a long-standing relationship with crime and its identification, prevention, detection, and punishment. With information on each citizen spanning up to 700 databases and over 4 million CCTV cameras in the UK alone, many have put forward the notion that we live in a ‘surveillance society’. Offering a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between surveillance, crime, and criminal justice, this book critically explores the development and uses of surveillance technologies, the intensification of monitoring and control, and the uneven impact this is having upon different populations in modern society.
