To understand these dynamics, we looked at buy-in and uses beyond the initial circle of promoters.

In Germany too, the recent modification to state police legislation seems to have played a role in the diffusion of CCTV (Töpfer 2012). Another factor that could have contributed to the spread of CCTV is local population support (Ditton 2000). 9 A study conducted in Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, and Coventry (Charman and Honess 1992) revealed strong public support for CCTV (85 per cent in favour) but found that it was based on a misunderstanding of the actual capabilities of CCTV devices. Public support for CCTV is also something of a paradox: according to the European survey “Urbaneye”, whilst respondents overwhelmingly favoured video, more than half of them felt its effectiveness was limited (Hempel and Töpfer 2004).
