SPOKANE, Wash — Cities throughout the nation are incentivizing safety cameras you’ve in your properties.
Chicago has began a rebate program to financially incentivize residents to buy video surveillance techniques to assist deter crime.
“You might be able to tell who it is but do you actually have enough in court to actually put someone behind bars for it and the answer is usually no,” mentioned Tyler James, President and CEO for Tytech Security Solutions.
With property crime on the rise within the Inland Northwest, he’s seen an increase of individuals trying to buy complete safety digicam techniques.
“Camera alone doesn’t really deter it,” James mentioned. “But, when you start integrating your other systems, your building automation, you can turn off all the lights or turn on all the parking lot lights, that’s where we’ve actually seen results in deterring theft and deterring crime.”
The Spokane Sheriff’s Department has a voluntary video identification program. If you select to enroll, throughout a serious felony or public security incident, it might act as a “quick reference.” It would allow them to know who to contact within the space for footage.
Ryan Merriott, a sufferer of property theft, is trying to spend money on surveillance cameras within the close to future.
“I mean you could probably tally up the total just under 10 thousand dollars for the whole neighborhood but I think the true loss is our security more than anything else,” he mentioned.
