  • More organizations are sharing videos with an average of 3.04 parties in 2015, while in 2018, the average rose to 3.4. The increase of sharing videos was shown in the following departments: “City surveillance centers” (10% to 22%), “Fire departments” (4% to 28%) and “Regional/national security centers” (5% to 12%).
  • Public support for video surveillance on public transport has grown since 2015 from 65% to 73% as consumers perceive the safety and security benefits as outweighing the threats to personal privacy.
