There are between 4 million and 5.9 million CCTV surveillance cameras in the UK according to a new report from the British Security Industry Association (BSIA).
The proportion of cameras controlled by local government is around 1 in 70.
Private companies are actually funding the majority of the nation’s CCTV on the basis that it delivers a clear return on investment and this is where the majority of footage used by Police is sourced. Effective CCTV schemes are an invaluable source of crime detection and evidence for the Police. For example in 2009, 95 per cent of Scotland Yard murder cases used CCTV footage as evidence. The public are supportive of CCTV with 62 per cent wanting to see more in their local area and it is important that we retain their trust and confidence.
Analogue CCTV is still in full demand in the UK. Some installers, like Sonis Fire & Security, in ways prefer this type of system to IP. A standalone analogue CCTV system has no dependancies on any other trades or factors. If there is a fault with your CCTV system its down to us to rectify the problem.
