Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) July 20, 2013
On July 20, The Protective Group, an insurance investigator provider, comments on an article published on Reuters regarding the use of private CCTV cameras across the UK and how beneficial cameras are to security companies.
According to a July 10th article published on Reuters titled “Big Brother next door? Most of UK’s 6 million CCTV cameras are privately owned,” there are over 5.9 million security cameras currently operating in Britain. Recently, the article says the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) discovered that there are over 70 times more privately owned cameras than those publicly operated by British police and other authorities.
The research determined that approximately 2.1 million cameras are owned and operated privately for a variety of reasons. Some of these include “the protection of property, crime detection, and safety. “
John Monderine, CEO of The Protective Group, a leading private investigator service provider, says using private security cameras is a great way to prevent petty crime.
“While there are some people that discourage the use of private CCTV, the footage those cameras capture can prove extremely useful if there is any sort of incident,” he says. “I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t want to install cameras to protect their home or place of business. With cameras, they are able to provide evidence, easily and without any delay, if needed for investigation. CCTV footage can be the turning point in an unsolved case and prove to be vital for an insurance investigator, private investigator or the police.”
Monderine says the growing trend in security cameras is here to stay. “Private security will always be a debated topic, but there are enough proven benefits of utilizing CCTV. There are also a lot of people out there that use the cameras effectively and correctly, so I see an even bigger growth of citizens installing their own cameras in the future.”
