    A man who walks into a bank and starts shooting people is not worried about if there are cameras or not. The police would not have seen the man in the bank and rushed there to stop him shooting people, they might see the people falling to the floor covered in blood but thats it. Also most cameras do not show a live feed they are recordings so if something does happen they can replay after help police catch the criminal. A city wide network of cameras would cost hundreds of millions if not billions and thats just for the streets and it would be voluntary for private companies to hook up to the system and if they were going to it would be at their own expense and since the cost would probably be in the tens of millions to cover all their branches I very much doubt that Bank Hapoalim would even decide they want to hook up to this grid because that would be alot of PROFIT lost by installing these cameras and they would make up that loss of profit by increasing banking fees so Bank Hapoalim customers will pay for the cost of installing these cameras not Bank Hapoalim shareholders. The amount of times there are actually problems it would nit be economically viable instead they have their own in branch cameras which record and the tapes are not passed onto the police unless a crime is committed. Of course we can have our city wide network we just have to agree to PAY for it through higher local taxes, do we want higher taxes and no city wide camera network or do we want lower taxes and no cameras. In the UK they have more CCTV cameras than the rest of the world combined and there is still crime so what reason do we have to believe that city wide networks in Israel would stop crime, these cameras are primarily for use after the crime has been committed.
