Some news for those you who, like us, were wondering about the deployment of Passive Millimetre Wave Radar Cameras which can "see" under your clothes, on the streets of London, which we commented on November 8th 2003:
So what what exactly was Sir John Stevens referring to in his interview with Sir David Frost ?
Has it been decided not to deploy these "see under your clothes" cameras on the streets of London after all ? Or is it that the technology is not being deployed by the Metropolitan Police, even though they seem to have helped to develop it in secret, but by some other law enforcement agency instead ?
The issues of privacy, the "stop and search" policy, the possible offences of voyeurism or of making indecent images of children under the Sexual Offences Act, and questions about health and safety for the camera operators if extended range microwave radar spotlights or floodlights are used, remain to be answered.
