For establishments which hold large sums of money or items of high value, it’s essential to have CCTV security systems in place.

Police have revealed that the Ormskirk children’s play centre that was targeted for a safe containing £2,000 had CCTV security installed and that the gang of men shown arriving at the centre stepped out of a green Vauxhall Vectra with a sledge hammer, according to an article in the Ormskirk & Skelmersdale Advertiser on the 13th of March, 2014. In addition, two of the girls who were staffing the centre on the day of the incident were so shaken they had to be sent home. Owner Sara Brookes claims that the men responsible must have known where they were going, taking the safe and leaving in less than 30 seconds.

As specialists in business security systems, AlertSystems closely follow news relating to CCTV. A representative for the company showed an interest in this story, and took the opportunity to discuss the importance of CCTV systems in businesses that are responsible for children’s safety:

“Armed raids can be a terrifying experience for people who are involved and the potential for violence with this crime means it’s important to have CCTV security systems in place, particularly in places and businesses that hinge on the safety of children. In incidents like this one, where CCTV has been put in place for the safety of staff and clientele, footage can be reviewed by police detectives to better understand the series of events and to identify suspects.

“For establishments which hold large sums of money or items of high value, it’s essential to have CCTV security systems in place. Not only can the CCTV camera perform as an effective crime preventative, but high quality footage installed by professionals can be used to bring those responsible for an act of crime before a judge.”
