Just last week, in the Washington D.C. area, gunfire was heard in the parking lot of a strip mall, near a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant. Police arrived on the scene to find a woman with a gunshot wound to the leg; a second victim had already been taken to the hospital by a friend. Video from security cameras located around other businesses near the restaurant allowed detectives to identify the parties involved and piece together a timeline of events. The suspects have been caught and charged thanks to quality security cameras.
This weekend, in Beaverton, Oregon, a man was caught on camera, stealing a laptop from an Internet cafe. A female accomplice distracted employees, while a man cut the cords to a laptop and stuffed it in his pants. It took employees over half an hour to notice that a theft had occurred and the suspects had already left the cafe with the laptop. Fortunately, the entire incident was caught on the cafe’s newly-installed security cameras and police were able to feed the footage to local media, asking for help in identifying the suspects.
In Wiscasset, Maine, a man was arrested in connection with the burglaries of six different businesses, after local police released images taken from a restaurant security camera to local media. An acquaintance of the suspect saw the footage and contacted the police, helping them identify the man. According to the police department, several others phoned in to identify the suspect after the photos were shown on local news programs.
These are just a few examples of the hundreds of crimes caught on camera throughout the country, each day. Because the owners of these businesses took the time to install surveillance systems, suspects were easily identified and arrested, property was recovered, employees and customers were protected, future incidents were prevented and lives were possibly saved.
