I read an interesting article that basically says for all the billions and billions of dollars that the UK has spent to create the worst example of Big Brother out of control police state, it does not reduce crime;
Only 3% of all street crime was solved with a surveillance camera; Wow!
CCTV boom has failed to slash crime, say police
Massive investment in CCTV cameras to prevent crime in the UK has failed to have a significant impact, despite billions of pounds spent on the new technology, a senior police officer piloting a new database has warned. Only 3% of street robberies in London were solved using CCTV images, despite the fact that Britain has more security cameras than any other country in Europe.
The warning comes from the head of the Visual Images, Identifications and Detections Office (Viido) at New Scotland Yard as the force launches a series of initiatives to try to boost conviction rates using CCTV evidence.
They admit with all this technology, they don’t know what to do with it. With feeds from millions and millions of cameras, there are not enough people on earth to look at it all, so the idea of public surveillance systems decreasing crime is a myth.
However, at home or your business, a digital video surveillance system will capture the images of some punk breaking in or vandalizing your property. You won’t need to sift through tens of thousands of hours of video to find the right bit to burn onto a DVD to give to the Police.
We wrote a couple articles on this subject and posted them over @ ezinearticles.com:
