This research is conducted in terms of print media articles downsized to MOBESE-related items in four selected newspaper articles published between the years of 2008-2015. A content analysis was used in order to determine predominant themes in representations of MOBESE in the print media. Based on this analysis, this study offers major three themes; panopticism and police, crime control and fear, and, infringements of privacy. It is concluded that MOBESE installation and its expansion is advocated in the print media with these three themes in order to provide an increase in social control which constructs security cultures through video-surveillance.
