No to cam­eras

rE: Calls for CCTV at East­field Ceme­tery, ET, June 17.

I’m less than en­thu­si­as­tic about a call for yet more cam­eras. The rea­son be­ing that I re­main un­con­vinced of their ef­fec­tive­ness, for one thing the im­ages ob­tained tend to be of a less than use­less qual­ity, and the cam­eras can be ren­dered even more use­less by the sim­ple wear­ing of a hoody top.

While I do agree that cam­eras can de­ter the op­por­tunist thief, you have to ask if the ex­pense is war­ranted. I be­lieve the an­swer is not to leave cher­ished items at the grave side and ac­cept the fact that Peter­bor­ough will not al­low for a de­cent qual­ity of life in many re­spects. The best seems to be be­hind us now. Per­haps if the city coun­cil could find £11.2 mil­lion from some­where, they could af­ford to pay a PC to swing by ev­ery now and then.
