CCTV Systems Are Better At Deterring Crime Than Burglar Alarms

Posted on by admin

Rural homes should get CCTV systems to prevent crime, says Inspector Chief inspector James Sutherland believes CCTV systems are better at deterring crime than burglar alarms. (Original article published by the Cambridge Evening News - 27 February 2017) Homes in rural areas should have CCTV systems to prevent crime, according to a chief inspector for South Cambridgeshire Constabulary. Chief inspector James Sutherland argues that CCTV systems are better than burglar alarms. At a South Cambridgeshire Police panel meeting in Orchard Park, Cambridge, on Wednesday, CI Sutherland said: "One of the reasons why solving crime in rural areas is much harder than cities is the total absence of CCTV. "You go into Cambridge city and there is really good, authority owned CCTV and there has been for a long time.” "But there is none in South Cambridgeshire. If people can get CCTV then I would wholeheartedly recommend it.” "It's a great deterrent for burglars and a better deterrent than a burglar alarm." He added that CCTV should be accompanied by a "chain of security", rather than people making isolated purchases. "The overarching point I make about security is that home security only works when you chain things together. "But a burglar alarm, or CCTV system, with a good physical system, such as good locks and lighting, has an accumulative effect on crime prevention. "If it were me, I'd start with the good window locks and door locks, security lighting, timer switches and then once that's done, consider burglar alarms and CCTV systems and more advanced security."
