CCTV video of shop lifters in London or Christmas time shop lifting is likely to reach all time this year, according to new research.Experts are predicting that more than £1bn worth of goods will be lost from stores in the run-up to December 25. Figures from the Centre for Retail Research (CRR) suggest that the damage will be done by light-fingered employees and those involved in supply chain fraud, as well as by shoplifters. An additional £61m worth of goods is expected to go missing during the season of goodwill in 2011, compared with the same period last year. If you own a business or shop, you can minimise this risk by having visible professional CCTV in place. It follows that CCTV can prevent the crime before it happens. On entering a premises, a potential criminal who sees a camera that can clearly identify him, will think twice before acting, especially when their own image appears on a display monitor. In this scenario a crime is prevented. However if a crime is committed, CCTV will assist in the identification of the thief. However to achieve high quality useable images the correct camera, lens, camera position, and image recording facilities must be identified. There will be a lack of useable evidence if the wrong camera, or even the correct one in a poor location, is installed.
