Police Investigators
For CCTV recordings to be effective in detecting and investigating crime they must be fit for purpose and easily accessible by police investigators. For digital CCTV there are 4 main areas that must be considered:

• Quality – are the pictures good enough?
• Storage – are the pictures stored appropriately?
• Export – can the pictures be easily exported from the system?
• Playback – can the pictures be easily viewed by authorised third parties?

CCTV – Closed Circuit Television.
A television system intended as a “closed” system, rather than broadcast system, to be viewed by only a very limited number of viewers e.g. 1 camera to 1 monitor in its simplest form.

An article in ‘New Scientist’ magazine showed that simply installing a system can reduce crime, in the areas covered, by over 95%. As our customers inform us that they are having similar results in all types of business, you will begin to appreciate why CCTV is seen by many as the best system for deterrent and detection.

Benefits of CCTV

CCTV security camera system technology and CCTV equipment can be used in both internal and external environments to watch over and protect people, property, vehicles and valuables.

Proper Maintenance

Metropolitan Police Service Commissioner Sir John Stevens told a recent press conference:

“CCTV is a powerful weapon in preventing and detecting crime – just look how it helped us catch the nail bomber in a matter of days. But without proper maintenance, clean lenses and decent tapes it’s a bit like looking at things through a snowstorm.”

Whether you are protecting your business or your home against robbery and theft, if you use CCTV to protect your premises you should check your system.

There are a few simple rules to ensure that CCTV is not rendered useless:

  • Change tapes daily*
  • Use them no more than 12 times*
  • Keep tapes for at least a month (Check with your Data Protection Policy)*
  • Use good quality tapes and check them by playing them on a different machine*
  • Ensure that the picture is clear
  • Check that the time and date displays are correct
  • Check that the picture is covering the right area
  • Make sure there is enough light for the camera to give a proper picture
