Corporation & City Area Security

Image 02

As cities and towns expand, security in common areas like parks and down towns becomes more and more important. A constant stream of consumers and visitors are vital for the success of restaurants and local businesses, and video surveillance is a great security tool to keep consumers safe and towns thriving. Already in widespread use in western countries, more and more cities and local governments in India are beginning to install surveillance cameras in public areas.

  • By bringing in additional business and encouraging use of public spaces, public surveillance cameras can help make parks, public squares and city sidewalks better and more hospitable for everyone.

  • Cameras posted in high-traffic and risky areas can help reduce street crime and encourage more consumer traffic to stores and restaurants, increasing business and local area.

  • Security cameras in public places can help reduce vandalism and crime, and assist law enforcement in apprehending criminals whose malfeasance is caught on camera.

  • Traffic cameras that simply monitor car flows on roads and major arteries are often maintained by state departments of transportation.

  • Along with monitoring the roads for accidents or major closures, footage from traffic cameras is influential in decisions regarding future road development and construction.

  • Cameras used to enforce speed and red light laws are effective in catching moving violations and issuing tickets.

  • There, the city government has begun to offer incentives to businesses who install surveillance cameras. Agreements like this one may foster better relationships between businesses and governments while boosting security.

  • Visible surveillance cameras posted at intersections can encourage safe driving habits and discourage moving violations.

  • One unexpected benefit of surveillance cameras in public places is improved relationships between businesses and local governments.

  • Traffic cameras placed at common congestion points on highways, freeways, interstates and major arteries often share feeds with news outlets - both radio and TV, which in turn pass them onto commuters in the form of traffic reports.

  • Normally, traffic flows do not vary much from day to day, but in the event of a severe accident or road closure, a traffic alert can be extremely valuable for a time-crunched commuter.
