CCTV used to protect empty houses

CCTV used to protect empty houses

CCTV systems not only act as a deterrent, making criminals less likely to target a protected property, but the security technology is also extremely useful when it comes to ensuring that suspects are apprehended.

The Derby Telegraph recently highlighted an example where the cameras were pivotal in an arrest.

Derbyshire Police and the local housing associations had been looking at ways to protect empty dwellings and decided to install CCTV on the property.

They were set up in a home in Cambridge Street, Rose Hill, which was broken into in the early hours of Friday (December 7th) and less than a week later, officers arrested two teenagers in connection with the break-in.

A 17-year-old has been charged with burglary, while police are continuing to question a 15-year-old.

Any member of the public with information about the burglary should call Derbyshire police on 101.

People can also contact CrimeStoppers anonymously.
