Smile your caught on camera

What do ‘f-bomb bandit’, several recent bank robbers, the Times Square Bomber, the craigslist Murderer, and Joran van der Sloot have in common?
 
They were caught with the aid of surveillance cameras. Love them or hate them surveillance camera are here to help police, business owners and even citizens to catch criminal. Do you remember the new story of the citizen who used her PC Camera to catch criminals who broke into her home? So if you ever get the feeling you’re being watched? Walking down the street, or standing at the ATM, driving to someplace, or just sense that someone somewhere is keeping an eye on you? These days, chances are, you’re correct. In the past several months on the evening news, we have seen footage that was taken when a crime was permitted. Often you wonder how anyone can recognize those images, but people do. Also you have to know that the footage that is given to the news channels is not necessarily the clearest image, because that footage is in the hands of the law enforcement community. While surveillance may not deter crime they do help in the apprehension of the criminals.

How can a security camera help you?

Surveillance Camera aid in Arrests and Identification

A surveillance camera helps thwart crime in several ways. The first is by increasing the possibility for arrest. A criminal whose act is caught on tape can be identified by law enforcement by facial recognition. If the criminal already has a record, the software and criminal mug shot database can be used to match the criminal’s face just like to show on CSI. If your local police does have this high tech set up, the camera video can be analyzed and matched up to known criminals. These criminals can then be detained and caught.

Surveillance Camera aid Criminal Conviction

Surveillance cameras are used not only to help law enforcement officer identify criminals whose acts are recorded, but to convict them in a court of law. A surveillance camera recording can be used in a court to not only identify a criminal but to show the act of their crime to a jury. The guilt of the criminal based on this evidence is nearly indisputable. Surveillance cameras can also be used to get search and arrest warrants and to identify those individuals who were at the scene of the crime so they may be used as witnesses in court. This helps to bolster the prosecutor’s case because it is great evidence.

Surveillance Camera can be used as a Scare Tactics

 Not only can surveillance camera be used to catch and convict, but having one at your business can be a huge deterrent. In fact there are retailers who use a combination of real and imitation surveillance cameras to help deter crime. This alone can reduce the level of crime at any store or even in some neighborhoods. A criminal who knows he will be filmed and possibly identified by a surveillance camera will often choose another mark, or decide not to carry out a planned crime at all. Surveillance cameras can also be used by security guards to monitor different parts of a building. This could lead to the prevention of a crime in progress and is another big deterrent for criminals
