Abstract
“An investigation into the Video Surveillance System at Indus” The increasing motive of safety and security for students in schools today has enforced many schools to have video surveillance systems installed. I have chosen the topic, “An Investigation into Video Surveillance at Indus” because; security has become one of the top priorities for schools. Video surveillance has been chosen by most of the schools for protecting their school as it has proven to be a very efficient method of supervision. Here, in Indus International School two cameras have been installed and are operated around the clock. I discussed about video surveillance at schools in general and Indus International School in particular. All members are conscious of the video surveillance system at Indus International School. I have investigated, teachers, students and security, they think that video surveillance is the best way to protect school from all dangers. Few students feel that their privacy is being invaded. Even the security and teachers feel their privacy is being invaded to an extent. However, when an overall view was taken, all the three groups have no problem with the video surveillance system. Benefits of video surveillance at Indus have been stated along with the questionnaire feedback analysis. Impact of video surveillance at Indus has been briefed with reasons taking the student’s safety, security and privacy into consideration. IT background of the issue has been covered along with the software and hardware requirements. Information Technology issues containing ethical consideration such as invasion of privacy is discussed. Social and ethical issues arising out of video surveillance such as vandalism and the installation of this security has been briefed. As per my investigation I came to a conclusion that video surveillance systems are a must for protecting school security, although it should take in the consideration of not invading the privacy of students and teachers.
