About £500,000 will be spent adding speaker facilities to existing cameras.

Shadow home affairs minister James Brokenshire said the government should be "very careful" over the cameras.

One of the 20 area's that these camera's will be launching on is Wirral. I heard this earlier on the radio, and the public feedback seemed very good.

As one person put it, if your not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about. As always though the privacy nobs will have something to critisize the new camera's with.

I can't wait, I think it will bring more awareness to criminals that they are being watched, and will act as a far stronger deterrent then existing cctv, much of which is not really that obvious or visable.

Well... 8 are installed and ready for use:

Eight existing cameras in Wirral have been fitted with speakers as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

The borough is one of 20 places granted £25,000 from the Home Office's Respect Task-force to fund the scheme.

Talking cameras have already been installed in Blackpool in Lancashire and Salford in Greater Manchester.

Why do feel that people monitoring the camera's are only going to use them to take the piss? Maybe you would... but fortunatly you won't be monitoring them. It will be scurity officers who not only have SIA cctv licenses, but will also have additional training as part of the scheme to enable them to use the camera's in an appropriate manner.

What evidence do you have? Do you not think it is regulated? It wouldnt have been extended to other parts of the country if it was being abused in Boro.

You wont be so quick to write them off as a joking idea if you or someone you know has their car prevented from being robbed as a result of these camera's.

They WILL reduce crime, this IS proven, therefore they are a great thing to have on the Wirral, I want to see efforts to make crime figures lower.

wink

Erm Mark, what you dont realise, is yes, everyone has a laugh, Scott has an SIA cctv license and he is about as much of a laugh as anyone can be, but when he is in work and its members of the public who he is dealing with his attitude totally changes, he is serious about his job.

You dont understand that peoples jobs and incomes are a LOT more important then making a few wise cracks made to members of the public. Security officers dont pay hundreds of pounds and spend time completing their licenses so they can go and throw it away by making a few stupid wise cracks over a cctv system.

Just like I have the ability to go into absolutely anybody's hosting account on my servers and do what the hell I want with their files and website, the same as I can with my customers audio and video streams, I could stream porn over them or just stupid jokes. But I dont. And the reasons I dont is firstly morals, and secondly respect for the customer and thirdly because its my job (my livelyhood) and my job and income are far more important to me then doing so.

Maybe you would want to poke fun at people as they walk by, but then it shows how long you would be in a job, because members of the public WILL be able to report the misuse of these camera's and it wouldnt take a mastermind to work that an unusually high number of reports of misuse are all coming on camera x when officer x is on duty.

At the end of the day the key issue here is crime, I think they are a great help towards fighting it, no form of cctv will ever be a solution, but if it deters one criminal a week from committing crimes, then Wirral is more then gettings its money worth imho.

No matty they sell them on or they appear on youtube that's how responsible "People" in responsible positions can be.

Fire man in a tumble drier.
cctv coverage sold of embarrassing moments.
Police caught knocking seven colours out of some one.

Its call life. And there will come a time when there is a officer being rep remanded or sacked for the very reasons you say doesn't happen.

That allows me to have a sense of humour about the camera's, does the cost justify the benefits only time will tell. That's alot of money and for what ?? "Stop pissing in the Door way"

Anyone involved in a crime say steeling from a car, and they get a cd player. They run off only to hear "STOP STOP" from a lamp post. Its either the shock of it that's going to stop them, or there just going to keep running. Or even fall to the floor laffing. You never heard of a hoodie or a hat to cover your face.

Now ask yourself where the £500,000 is coming from?
