The government spends a lot of public money on installing CCTV Camera systems. More than 500 million has been spent on protecting the city of London and more is being invested across Britain. The tax payer also pays for the court’s time and for the judicial machineray to help put the bad guys behind bars. It is a real shame that most of the technology that the government is spending on is not the most advanced. CCTV Camera London wants to ask the government what is the point of having CCTV cameras that take pixelated or grainy pictures? Night cameras that provide pictures that look like an untidy canvas of oil painting. Our iPhones and latest cameras have high mega pixels and can capture near to real pictures, which if you zoom in provides you a good detailed view. Our courts will save so much time and our police will be able to get clues and evidence without wasting months to find the wrong doers if the CCTV cameras installed are of a high quality. Case in point, are the latest two crimes which could have been solved very quickly if the video footage captured was of a high quality.
