The US government is now considering the role of surveillance more seriously, especially after the event of 9/11 that identified fatal flaws in the security system. According to Laurie Wiegler (2008), Each Londoner is caught on camera on average 200 times each day, substantially more frequently than an individual living in New York City. Yet, terrorist threats –real or perceived – are transforming US demeanor to surveillance. Due to significant security concerns in America, the US is making up for lost time to its British ally: about 3,000 cams are being introduced as a component of the Lower Manhattan Security Initiative; an example resounded in various others American groups, including Dallas, Phoenix, Baltimore, New Orleans and Los Angeles. Additionally, New York City's Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) is a middle empowering an inventive security update, which began in 2006 (2008). Moreover, Wiegler also claims that, individuals living in London face much more government surveillance as opposed to its ally New York City. First of all New York is much bigger than London and secondly, British government took necessary steps to equip the city with camera. Notwithstanding this fact, the Americans have stepped up their surveillance game by incorporating more cameras in large areas of Manhattan and several urban American cities. As a result of this residents of New York City will be subject to much more surveillance and government reconnaissance. Surveillance (/sərˈv.əns/ or /sərˈvləns/) is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting them. This can include observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment (such as CCTV cameras), or interception of electronically transmitted information (such as Internet traffic or phone calls); and it can include simple, relatively no- or low-technology methods such as human intelligence agents and postal interception. The word surveillance comes from a French phrase for "watching over" ("sur" means "from above" and "veiller" means "to watch"), and is in contrast to more recent developments such as sousveillance.

Surveillance is used by governments for intelligence gathering, the prevention of crime, the protection of a process, person, group or object, or for the investigation of crime. It is also used by criminal organizations to plan and commit crimes such as robbery and kidnapping, by businesses to gather intelligence, and by private investigators.

Surveillance is often a violation of privacy, and is opposed by various civil liberties groups and activists. Liberal democracies have laws which restrict domestic government and private use of surveillance, usually limiting it to circumstances where public safety is at risk. Authoritarian government seldom have any domestic restrictions; and international espionage is common among all types of countries.
