CCTV can provide police with valuable information, as well as helping to identify those who may be responsible.

According to the Portsmouth newspaper, The News in the article ‘CCTV Released In Hunt For Purbrook Mobile Phone Thief’ published on September 18, the alleged theft took place at the One Stop store in London Road in Purbrook, Hampshire. According to the report, a man visiting the store reported his mobile phone missing after he put the phone down whilst he put change into his wallet. It was after he’d left the shop that he realised his phone was missing.

The News reports that two men walked past the phone, with one of the individuals placing the item in his pocket. In connection with the incident, the CCTV image of a man has been released in an attempt to identify him.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary told The News that:

“This is a theft committed by someone who had the opportunity to hand the new iPhone 5 back to the victim. The phone was mislaid for only a few minutes before it was stolen, but the victim immediately reported it to staff.”

AlertSystems, who are experts in security systems, understand the importance of installing CCTV to protect businesses as well as customers. A spokesperson for the company offered their comments:

“While a CCTV security system can be used to protect businesses against incidences of theft, such systems can also be put in place for the safety and well-being of customers and members of staff. Unfortunately, incidences can occur when a customer is a victim of a theft, and so footage recorded by the CCTV can provide police with valuable information, as well as helping to identify those who may be responsible.”
