For anyone who owns a business and where security is paramount, the sight of commercial CCTV cameras can be a great deterrent against opportunist thieves. However, there are other instances where the installation of commercial CCTV can be invaluable, even though it would not have been your initial intention.

For those searching for missing persons, having access to CCTV footage at certain locations at certain specific times can prove invaluable. A more sobering thought is that 97% of all murder enquiries in England use private CCTV footage retrieved from commercial and residential premises. For all those who voice their concern that the UK is turning into a facsimile of George Orwell’s 1984 and a Big Brother state, the truth of the matter is that a lot of good can come out of CCTV surveillance. In an article in the Daily Telegraph the results of a survey of over 6,000 polled people clearly indicate that the majority of us are happy to welcome CCTV into our lives.

For many of us, having CCTV installed provides immense peace of mind, it is like having a guard dog watch over your premises and telling you if they witnessed any suspicious activity during the night. After all, many criminals like to check out a place before they rob it, wearing balaclavas during the robbery but forgetting to cover up their faces when making their plans!

While peace of mind may be achieved on the one hand, the litmus test comes when you actually achieve positive results from your vigilance. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but the sight of unwanted activities caught on your CCTV cameras is a lot better!
