The simple reality is that the result of cutting police officers and funding is a rise in crime.
Ron Hogg, the lead for workforce planning, said: “The reduction in the number of PCSOs may also have serious implications for the future of neighbourhood policing.”
Undoubtedly, a CCTV system in place can help to prevent or deter theft, vandalism, and other crimes. It can also reduce the risk of costly accidents such as fires, reduce insurance premiums, and help law officers catch criminals.
According to The Independent
“Police officer numbers hit record low as reported crime rises by 14% in England and Wales. Whilst numbers of break-ins, burglaries and car-thefts increase the number of serving police officers continues to decrease.”
The beginner’s mistake
The danger, to some extent, is that everyone rushes out and installs a DIY CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) system, while the security industry knows that all homes are not the same and one size does not fit all.
