Increasingly the only way that we can look to protect our properties and our belongings is to use CCTV. Close Circuit Television is not as new as it might seem. The use of cameras to record security issues has been with us since the 1950’s. However the cameras that were used back then were extremely easy to spot and were also very intrusive.

As the decade of the 50’s progressed it became clear that although in its infancy this system of security was going to be a great asset in the fight against crime. For a start it meant that there was no real need for a regular patrol. This can be easily avoided, especially if the time that they are undertaken is set on a regular basis. With a CCTV camera there is an eye on more locations and on a constant setting of vigilance. This means that officers or guards can be deployed quickly and smartly to an area at a moment’s notice.
The other advantage is that what is recorded can be used as evidence in a court of law. As long as it can be proved that the suspect is definitely the person in the camera still or video footage. This has led to a series of high profile convictions in the past. Another plus side is that thieves and criminals often act on opportunity and with a mind to the speed in which they can perform the crime. If they see a CCTV camera they will think twice. That delay could foil the attempt before it starts.
