PROTECTING YOUR PROPERTY IN BRIDGEND, CARDIFF AND SWANSEA
CCTV cameras offer easy and accessible video surveillance for small businesses. Protecting your business with CCTV doesn't have to cost a fortune but can save you thousands of pounds in damage and loss.
There are many significant benefits of a good quality CCTV system:
CCTV is an electronic witness that can assist in proving guilt, innocence and association. It plays a significant part in many investigations by the police. There are two critical elements within the investigative process – the identification of suspects and the capture of events.
Staff and Public Safety
The use of CCTV for the safety of users of your business is important. Often this requires some form of live time monitoring of the cameras to enable an early intervention by an appropriate person in an incident such as an assault or a violent shoplifter.
The reduction of crime is inextricably linked to the ability to detect and prosecute offenders. The potential reduction strategy is therefore based on the threat of being caught. This preventative benefit relies on knowledge by the public of the presence of cameras and also their effectiveness. Clearly people cannot be deterred from committing crime if they don‟t know they are being watched.
Some CCTV has an important part to play in the management of a store, e.g. seeing the arrival of a delivery lorry. This will probably mean, however, that the same camera cannot be expected to be capable of identifying persons committing a crime. In simple terms don’t install a camera for one purpose and expect to use it for another because you and the police are likely to be disappointed.
