Race to the secure world

Which are the top 5 most security cities of the world?

Prevention is the best cure when it comes to a making the world a safe place. Cities around the world are busy building up their surveillance systems to protect their citizens. The need for a system can be understood in the words of Chicago Mayor Daley. He said, “Cameras identify the individual who has committed the crime”. He further maintained that using CCTVs is the best use of taxpayers’ money.

Ever wondered how the world cities are racing to a secure world

Here’re the top 5 cities with the largest network of electronic surveillance

1# London

The UK has the largest concentration of CCTVs and most of the cameras are located in London. Since it isn’t necessary to register a CCTV in London, there is no specific data about the exact number of CCTVs in the city.

2# Beijing

According to the Beijing Security and Protection Industry Association (BSPIA), the number of working CCTVs in the city is around 1.5 million.

3# Chicago

In 2005, the Chicago administration established a Homeland Security Grid under the name of Operation Virtual Shield (OVS) and connected its over 17,000 CCTVs to the greed. The CCTVs feed the ground data into the feed for correlation and analysis.

4# Houston

The exact number of CCTVs installed in Houston isn’t known but its crime rate shows that it is no less secure than Chicago.

5# New York

In New York, there are approximately 5,000 CCTVs working and all these cameras are privately owned and operated. It is a private network of security system that boosts safety and security of city residents and visitors.


Electronic surveillance has emerged as the strongest ally of the present security system of the world. It makes a system that is unbreakable under any circumstance. In the coming days, the CCTVs would strengthen the present security system.
