London police launched on 25th of February a new advertising campaign. Posters and TV ads are urging Londoners to turn in people who might be taking pictures of CCTV cameras.
"Thousands of people take photos every day.
What if one of them seems odd ?
Terrorists use surveillance to help plan attacks, taking photos and making notes about security measures like the location of CCTV cameras.If you see someone doing that, we need to know.
Let experienced officers decide what action to take."
Other posters target households:
"you see hundreds of houses every day. What if one has unusual activities and seems suspicious"
as well as mobile phone users :
"Thousands of people have mobiles. What if someone with several seems suspicious?"
What's going on in London ? Is the Metropolitan police not busy enough ? did they become completely paranoiac ? or do they need some budget increase ?
