Surveillance (CCTV)

The word surveillance comes from a French phrase for “watching over” (“sur” means “from above” and “veiller” means “to watch”), and is in contrast to more recent developments such as sousveillance. Surveillance is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting them. This can include observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment or interception of electronically transmitted information and it can include simple, relatively no- or low-technology methods such as human intelligence agents and postal interception.
