A conversation with an employee provided us with stronger reasons for the benefits of having CCTV
Recently I was at the gym and was slugging away at the punching bag, readying myself for the day's pressures. I noticed in a corner, and barely detectable, a small circular camera. My initial reaction was to train harder so anyone watching would be amazed by my gym abilities! But this feeling wore off as I pondered just why my personal space was being invaded.
When I got downstairs I made a joke with the manager about peeping-Toms among his staff members and he explained that gym equipment and members' personal belongings like mobile phones had been stolen recently. To prevent this they decided to put in CCTV! Since installing CCTV guess how many items have been taken? None absolutely zero.
The human psyche is interesting. Some unscrupulous individuals, believing they are clear of the watchful eye, will use any opportunity to break the law. Lack of security protocols allows such individuals to plan or act instinctively without restriction. Don't believe me just look at the difference between children at play when a parent/guardian is in attendance and compare that to when unsupervised. Somehow the children will end up on the top shelf of your book cupboard! moreover they will proclaim their innocence! And for some of these children the transition to adulthood results in no perceived difference.
So ultimately the uncompromising gaze of CCTV helps greatly in keeping the misbehaving inner child from breaking free and taking or destroying stuff, that will cost you greatly in the long run.
