Tuesday August 16, 2016 is Wave At The Surveillance Cameras Day.

“These days there are more and more people who think that the whole surveillance issue has gone a bit too far. It doesn’t matter where we are or what we’re doing, if we’re outdoors, especially in a city, there is a very high probability that we’re being recorded. Of course, they have helped to make countless cities safer by catching various crimes on video—from theft to vandalism to assault. Still, many can’t help but feel uncomfortable with the fact that almost all of their actions are being monitored, especially those who would not think of committing crimes.

Olean, New York was the first city in the United States to install video cameras along its main business street in an effort to fight crime in 1968. A few years later, in 1973, cameras also appeared in Times Square in New York City. In the 1980s video surveillance began to spread across the country, especially in public areas. Businesses that were especially prone to theft, such as banks and stores, also began to install surveillance cameras. Today, surveillance cameras are also used in traffic monitoring, transport safety, control of retail, as well as home and school security. The use of video surveillance in public places became more common after the September 11th Terrorist attacks so as to deter future terrorist attacks.

Wave At The Surveillance Cameras Day was created several years ago to help us all take a step back and having a bit of fun with issues that are usually gravely serious.

The good they have the potential to do for society as a whole is a strong argument in their favor. On Wave At The Surveillance Cameras Day, take a moment to have a little bit of fun with the cameras surrounding you and do what little kids do when they see a train: wave! The more people doing it, the cheerier the world will be, if just for a moment! . ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/maJQY
