Informative Speech about the Benefits of Security Cameras
General Purpose: To inform
Specific Purpose: After my presentation, everyone will know why the benefits of security cameras outweigh the negative implications, such as violation of privacy.
- Attention-getter. Citizens are highly concerned about the violation of their privacy in the wake of increased surveillance. It is stressful always to watch your back because “big brother is watching.” A great deal of your personal data is out there.
- IHS Markit report indicates that one billion surveillance cameras will have been installed globally by the end of 2021. The United States only will account for 18% of these CCTVs. As a result, people are more likely to be concerned about the invasion of their privacy and access to personal data.
- Reason to Listen. I know that most of you are concerned about this issue, but I am here to inform you that the benefits of the technology outweigh the costs.
- While it might be justifiable to worry about the violation of your privacy, remember that the cameras are necessary for your security.
- Preview of Main Points. I will cover information relating to the importance and need for surveillance cameras today. I will show how the benefits outweigh the cost.
- Main point. Surveillance cameras are installed in all public spaces for security purposes.
- Supporting point. Society is awash domestic and international threats, creating the need for surveillance. The government and other stakeholders are only protecting us and our property.
- Supporting point. Surveillance cameras prevent the opportunity for criminals to strike.
- Supporting point. Next time you are walking around the streets feeling safe, you have the CCTVs to thank.
Transition. The importance of protecting society from national and international threats is more critical than your privacy.
- Main point.Current evidence shows an increase in complex crimes, such as terrorism. This leaves no other option than to risk violating your privacy.
- Supporting point. Some people enter business premises intending to steal or even attack. Thus, it makes sense that a business owner would want to protect the premises.
- Supporting point. Government and even private stakeholders should prioritize security.
- Supporting point. Thus, it is clear that technology will help in preventing criminals from striking. For instance, if a case of active shooting can be prevented by installing cameras, we should do this by all means.
Transition. The government is responsible for national security, especially protecting its people from terrorism and other transnational crimes.
- Main point.Let us not put our government in a dilemma between protecting us and our privacy. We need to compromise one.
- Supporting point. If security can prevent the loss of life and property that occurred during the 9/11 attacks in the US, then we should support their use.
- Supporting point. When faced with such a dilemma, the government looks at which is a better evil. They should prioritize national security.
- Supporting point. It is no longer a question of whether security cameras will be installed in all public spaces.
- Review of main points.Although they violate privacy, surveillance cameras are the means through which we can be protected from crime.
- Reinforce purpose. This informative speech informs the audience about the necessity of surveillance cameras.
- Closing statement. There is no bargaining about the necessity of CCTVs in all public spaces.
