Privately owned devices
Majority of the surveillance camera devices have private owners. In such scenarios, coverage of pedestrians and vehicles on the road are not provided. The usage is purely for private purpose. The security cameras used for domestic purpose or even for corporates and businesses would cater only to a certain region boundary. Anything beyond that would not be covered. However, in the city of Chicago, large number of security surveillance cameras has been installed at different corners and crossings of roads to keep a check on pedestrians and criminal activities. These cameras are also seen in schools, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, museums, and galleries.
