Are you considering getting a surveillance system for your home or business? Surveillance systems generate data that help public health officials understand existing and emerging infectious and non-infectious diseases. Without a proper understanding of the health problem (etiology, distribution, and mechanism of infection), it will be difficult to ameliorate the health issue.
Video surveillance is a common technique employers use to monitor employee activities in the workplace. Many employers use video surveillance to minimize employee misconduct.
Video monitoring can also provide evidence of a crime if one were to occur at the worksite. Cameras keep you and your personal property safe. The police can identify criminals recorded with cameras. Through surveillance cameras, the police can both prevent crimes from happening and can quickly solve criminal cases with material evidence. Studies suggest that people observed by cameras feel that their behavior is being evaluated, and hence might adjust their behaviors in accordance with social norms. Findings from their study indeed showed that people were more willing to assist others when a camera was present and visible.
