Government cameras may well be available through freedom of information
laws.

For example, here is a request that got the locations of cameras in one
district of London:

In other places, the government will even pro-actively give out that
information. e.g. here's a government-produced spreadsheet location of
cameras in Nottingham, UK:

It might be useful just to collect together these existing resources on
a national or global level; I'd be up for helping with something like that.
