Supervisor: Dr Jackie Turton   󰁐󰁡󰁧󰁥 󰀲  󰁯󰁦 󰀵󰀸   Abstract Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is a widely discussed topic within criminology which concerns different issues such as crime prevention and control. The focus of this research project is to outline the different functions of CCTV and establish how effective this system is.The research used within this project is a mixture of qualitative and quantitative methods. Semi-Structured Interviews were used to collect rich in-depth data from people who had experience with CCTV and surveys were used to gather opinions from the general public. The aim of this project is to answer the question ‘Does CCTV work?’ by assessing and analysing the data collected. This research produced a number of key findings regarding CCTV in relation to crime prevention and detection, public safety, human rights and privacy. The data produced from this research project suggests that CCTV is a complex system however the positive aspects and functions of CCTV outweigh the negatives.   󰁐󰁡󰁧󰁥 󰀳  󰁯󰁦 󰀵󰀸   Acknowledgements First of all I would like to thank my supervisor Dr Jackie Turton.
