The society of the present times is very different from what it was a few years ago. There are more threats and more dangers lurking in the corners and you are not equipped to even know about them, let alone handle them. If you had a guardian angel watching out for you at all times, it would be great, but that is not so, we need to look for another solution.
When accidents happen, we look for clues and witnesses to find the culprit, but if someone could prevent it, it would have been better. In both such scenarios, surveillance would have played a key role. Similarly, in many aspects of our lives, it is important to have someone watching over at all times, so it is important to have surveillance systems installed while ensuring that they are not prone to any security breach.
- We Need To Protect
It’s important to protect not just our families but also the society from the dangers lurking around the corners. At home, if it is known that the surveillance system is active, any kind of misguided activity can be avoided (for instance, children or elderly being abused by the house help). Similarly, if there is active surveillance in public places, the miscreants will think twice before taking a chance to create mischief of any kind.
- We Need To Secure
We need to secure the public property, the buildings, the people and our businesses. All need security to function without the threat of being destroyed in a matter of minutes. This can be made possible by being alert to the signs that point towards danger. Having a surveillance system and reviewing the footage can reveal these signs very clearly.
- We Need To Watch Out For Miscreants In Public Places
Public places are the most vulnerable to mishaps and along with regular patrolling a surveillance team is required because they can look at the different sites at the same time and if they notice any suspicious activity, they can alert the patrolling office, making the job easier as well as more effective.
- We Need Evidence
In the instance that a mishap has not been prevented, the culprit needs to be caught and punished. This cannot be done without proper evidence. Surveillance systems are able to catch all the activity that happens in their coverage area and the footage is permissible evidence in court provided it has been verified by the forensics department
With so much that can be done, there seems to be no reason to avoid the use of surveillance systems, provided they do not invade the privacy of individuals.
