With the rapid growth of technology, people somehow do not realize that they are being watched (through equipment such as cellphone tracking or security cameras) by other persons. As far as I am concerned, disadvantages of this development surpass advantages.
First of all, in terms of the government, the increase of surveillance can assist people to prevent the expansion of the crime. Public security cameras record all of what happens in specific areas to collect evidence for solving any illegal actions. For example, if there is a murder, the police can easily find out the killer with cameras' recordings. Therefore, it cannot be denied that those equipment refer useful sources of information. However, besides outstanding benefits that we can get, many drawbacks are supposed to exist.
One of the most common problems when ultilizing these kinds of modern machinery in public places to control the country’s security is that it will lead to the rise in the cost of the government. This organization obviously need to spend much money on applying the system of security cameras, then insuring or fixing them if they have any problems. For instance, after a period of time using cameras, people must pay for insuring all of the systems to make sure that it still works well. Consiquently, it results in the high expense of the country.
In closing, as every knife has two sides, using technology to keep track people similarly has its own advantages and disadvantages. Though in my opinion, drawbacks also outweigh benefits that people can get from this development in specific extents.
