The Swedish general public’s attitudes towards the use of surveillance cameras (CCTV) in public spaces, April 2018

Lahtinen, Markus LU (2018)
Abstract
During the first week of April, 1,000 Swedes were asked via telephone about their opinions on the use of surveillance cameras in public spaces. Ninety percent (90%) of the public were positive when asked the question “What do you think about surveillance cameras in public spaces?” – 49% stating that they are “very positive” and 41% “quite positive”. Furthermore, 72% of the respond- ents stated that there should be more surveillance cameras installed, compared to the number cur- rently in use; while 3% stated a desire to decrease the number of surveillance cameras currently in use.
