This chapter examines how new forms of surveillance to govern public space have emerged in cities. In particular, the chapter moves beyond those perspectives that argue surveillance operates mainly through dispersed networks of digital codes and databases. Instead, the chapter argues that while modes of surveillance do operate through digital codes, it is also the case that the state regulates urban public space through visible and physical types of central power, such as police power.

Keywords:   digital codes, police, public space, resilience, security, surveillance
