THE new generation of CCTV technology could be both a money-saver and money-maker for the Isle of Wight Council... 
We are looking at increasing revenue generation and that will enable us to increase staffing
Oh good! If the system makes more money, then there can be even more watching!
As I say, they're disarmingly blunt about it on the Isle - but the longstanding fears many of us have about CCTV as revenue raiser rather than crime deterrent or detector gain more and more credence every day.
And I also note this:

They seem to be confused about whether they want to 'improve staffing' or 'reduce staff'. With 5 CCTVs in Shanklin IOW, that'll be one for each pub then.

Btw, how do you go about 'acting suspiciously', might be fun trying to see how long it takes their oh-so-clever software to catch on.
