CCTV SYSTEM LEADS TO ARREST

Posted in: CCTV on Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Sometimes here at Newcastle Security we have a little win to crow about.

Recently a client in a Newcastle shopping precinct asked Newcastle Security to install a CCTV System, especially for his own protection. Two of his four CCTV cameras were installed to cover the footpath. Soon after the installation, Police came and asked to check the footage on this CCTV System. They were tracking a criminal who had committed a serious crime in the area.

Witnesses had been able to give a general description of the offender. Height, build, clothing, colours etc.

The CCTV Systems showed a person matching the description making a withdrawal from a nearby ATM on that day. The exact time on the CCTV System gave Police a sufficient lead with the Bank and his credit card to identify the culprit and arrest him.

Though the client was not a victim of the crime, he felt that the initial outlay was worth it.
