Abstract

This research examines what factors influence citizens' perceptions of surveillance cameras in public places. The sample consisted of 201 citizens in downtown Nashville, TN. The independent variables analyzed were gender, age, race, highest level of education, average household income, and marital status. Spearman's rho was used to determine statistical significance and correlation. The results showed that age and marital status had a statistically significant relationship with citizens' perception of surveillance cameras in public places. All other variables showed no statistically significant relationship.^
