60 percent of Danes want more surveillance
In the survey, carried out by YouGov on behalf of the BTMX media group, over half of participants responded that they would like to see an increase to the around 500,000 surveillance cameras currently in operation in public across the country, reports daily MetroXpress.
Only 15 percent said the amount should be reduced.
Peter Kofod Poulsen, legal affairs spokesperson with the nationalist Danish People’s Party, which has long called for more surveillance in public places, told MetroXpress that the result of the survey supported the arguments of his party.
“It can hopefully help police to solve the absolute worst crimes imaginable. Then I think that Danes will feel safer,” he said. ■
