Security cameras that can pan, tilt and zoom in on a subject during complete darkness while providing a crisp, clear video allow police officials to identify suspects and support a conviction in a court of law according to The Security Product Depot.

"It'll make a difference and it might make some people think twice about doing something wrong," said H. Williams, who has lived in the development for 37 years. "It's about time."

On June 1st, 6 year old Prince Joshua Avitto and 7 year old Mikayla Capers were stabbed in an elevator at the city ran Boulevard Houses in Brooklyn, New York. Prince didn’t survive the stabbing and Mikayla was critically injured. On June 11th, under Mayor Bill de Blasio’s direction, the New York City Housing Authority, home to more than 615,000 people, will install security cameras as a deterrent against crime. According to ABC News, H Williams, who has lived in the development for 37 years said, “It'll make a difference and it might make some people think twice about doing something wrong".

Before the cameras were installed, police had to question witnesses for a description of the incident and suspect(s), which were often flawed with a lack of detailed memory and skewed perception per ABC NEWS. Recorded video of the actual event provides officers with a frame by frame review that can be used in a court of law. The development of new technology in security cameras has become a valuable tool in the prevention of crime while assisting police officials by shortening the length of time to apprehend and convict a criminal according to The Security Product Depot.

"The High Resolution PTZ Security Dome Camera with Long Range Infrared is ideal for environments similar to the Boulevard Houses," stated The Security Product Depot because it’s designed for tough environments due to its heavy duty construction that helps to protect it against vandalism. It also has the ability to view the area in total darkness and the built in heater and blower that works together protects it against weather temperatures and humidity.

Along with its 360 degree rotation that prevents dead spots, it can pan in, tilt and zoom in on a subject. It is also equipped with auto-flip, auto-focus, 10x digital zoom and video freeze. The 5.5-55mm varifocal lens forms the optical front end of the security camera to create a crisp, clear video image.
