If they are not always-on then these 30k cameras will get junked after the first unrecorded shooting/beating.

If they are always-on, then the Met's already shoddy IT infrastructure will collapse under the weight of 10000 hours of video per hour (assuming an 8 hour shift) upload & storage. 240TB of video per day, 100,000 TB per year (law says evidence need to be retained for 5/7 years).

For comparison, YouTube deals with 2/3rds of this volume globally. The Met's IT guys are less funded than YouTube.

And then scale that across the whole UK? Multiply by 10.
