No One’s Above the Law

Filed under: CCTV — admin @ 12:18 pm

It’s all too easy to place our top professional footballers on pedestals and treat them like ‘Gods’, after all, they have lots of money, trophy wife’s and what’s more we watch them play every week for our favourite football team. However, as a court case this week proved no matter who you are – you’re not above the law. Former Manchester City striker, Kelvin Etuhu (22), was caught on a CCTV camera punching an individual, breaking his jaw in the process, before violently kicking him three times as his victim lay on the ground and was this week sentenced to eight months behind bars for causing actual bodily harm and affray.

Over the last few years, there has been a lot of controversy about the number of Closed Circuit Television Cameras (CCTV) that have sprung up across Britain watching everything you do from doing the weekly shop to enjoying a night out with mates. Here at Crime Prevention Products we believe that everyone should be safe no matter where they go, however one place that everyone wants to feel safe is in the sanctuary of their own home or even their office as they work.

Which is why we hold and supply a wide range of home or office CCTV systems which will enable not home and business owners to see who has or attempted to enter their premises without the proper authority.

Home CCTV Cameras Ideal Home Protection

Filed under: CCTV — admin @ 12:26 pm

When it comes to Closed Circuit Television or CCTV, we in Britain do it better than anyone else in the world. In fact it is estimated that there are now well over 4.2 million CCTV cameras watching everything we do. From driving to our friends house to doing our weekly shop there will be a high chance that you will have been monitored on a CCTV surveillance camera.

The CCTV camera was first used by the Germans back in 1942, by the engineer Walter Bruch, who used it to record the V2 rocket launch, since then over a hundred million CCTV cameras are now being used in every part of the world.

Love them or loathe them, CCTV cameras are a part of everyday life and companies such as your local convenience store, banks and petrol stations have used CCTV for years to help tackle shoplifting and to monitor suspicious behaviour. When it comes to CCTV they can be used for a variety of purposes and not only to help the police combat crime, they also help organisations such as the AA to look for accidents on busy roads or cars that have broken down.

In recent years, CCTV cameras, have been a welcomed extra to beef up your own home security systems. Often giving residents that extra peace of mind knowing that if someone was to attempt to intrude into their personal space then their image would be caught on camera – making it easier for police identification and an arrest possible.

Here at Crime Prevention Products we have a vast selection of CCTV systems which will be an ideal welcome addition to any home security set-up.

Smile Dummy You’re On CCTV

Opportunistic theft can happen at anytime and anywhere from the local shop to someone snatching your property out of your opened house window. However, the most frightening type of theft is when someone actually enters your property and helps themselves to your possessions while you or a family member ARE in the house. Some people can try and deter these opportunistic house invasions by thieves with having a home security system fitted, but to be honest if you’re already in your premises what is the likelihood that you’ll have your alarm system switched on?

There is no doubt that a closed circuit television (CCTV) is a great way to beef up your home security, and the great thing is that it can be run independently from your security system meaning that it can run constantly. However, in today’s financial climate some people may think that adding to their home security is something that can wait. But what if you were to give the illusion of having a CCTV system installed, at a mere fraction of the cost of a fully functioning CCTV system, making someone think twice that has dishonest intentions from carrying out the deed.

Here at Crime Prevention Products we supply a vast range of Dummy Internal and External CCTV Cameras that are indistinguishable from the real thing and can help fool even the best opportunistic thief into thinking that your premises is fully protected 24/7.

Home Security CCTV Cameras

Filed under: CCTV — admin @ 3:27 pm

Britain has over four million CCTV cameras that are constantly monitoring, recording and following everything we do. If you live in the larger cities or towns it is estimated that an individual is caught on camera at least three hundred times everyday. CCTV Cameras are a modern phenomenon, however, they still divide public opinion? In times gone by, images captured from ‘older’ CCTV Cameras would have been in black and white, grainy and somewhat out of focus. The introduction of modern Digital CCTV Cameras enhances image resolution and produces captured images which are now sharp enough to be used for positive identification in the event of any criminal activity.

Over the years, stretched police resources have relied upon investment of CCTV Cameras to help reduce the amount of crime in our cities, towns, and neighbourhoods. Now, even Councils are considering reducing the number of hours or even completely removing CCTV Cameras in a bid to help cut budget costs. There are those amongst us that see CCTV Cameras as an invasion of privacy and will see the reduction or removal of CCTV as a positive step. However, the consequence of a negative upturn in crime is a risk that could impact heavily in affected areas.

One of the more widely accepted uses of CCTV Cameras is to help bolster any home security system, giving you the reassurance that if you are unfortunate to have someone attempting to access your premises you’ll be able to give a positive identification to the authorities. Crime Prevention Products have a wide range of CCTV Cameras that will deter thieves from entering your premises and are a cost-effective solution to your home security issues.
