Should our democracy require law enforcement officials to get permission from a judge to access public video surveillance records?

Video surveillance is “a technology system of surveillance by cameras which can be chosen, set up and used by public authorities on public places for crime prevention or even crime prosecution. The right to privacy includes the expectation that your activities will not be monitored by the government. Like most rights, privacy has limits. Countries work to balance individual privacy protections against society’s need for safety and security. One proposal for balancing personal privacy with public safety is to require the police to get permission from a judge to look at video records.
