The unfolding trial of the Boston bombing suspect and the use of surveillance video in the trial is a demonstration of the value of security cameras for law enforcement efforts. Following the bombing police used video obtained from area surveillance cameras to track down the suspects in the bombing. And those videos are being used in the ensuing trial.
The use of these cameras prompted public officials like then Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel to speak of the “important function” security cameras play in offering safety on a daily basis and during events both big and small.
But surveillance security cameras are also useful in crime prevention and in monitoring home and business grounds to alert security of potential intrusions, or activity before crimes can take place.

But My Neighborhood is Safe. Nothing Ever Happens Here
Even though you feel like your neighborhood is safe, the best thing you can do is not leave things to chance. Unfortunately, safe neighborhoods and event gated communities are not immune to property crime. Criminals look for unprotected homes so they can quickly intrude, and escape undetected with your possessions. The visible signs of a surveillance security camera system will make them think twice about your home and move on to a less well protected home elsewhere. Not only will your family be protected, but so will your assets you have worked so hard to obtain.
