Security cameras, guards are not enough to prevent crime
Although it is useful for insurance claims or forensic investigation, having a security camera system barely helps to prevent crimes.
98% false alarm rate costs $1.8B/year for police dispatch
Video surveillance still relies on costly on-going human monitoring to make it useful.
Lapses still occur even in 24/7 high-security monitoring
After 12 minutes of continuous video monitoring, an operator will miss up to 45% of screen activity, and up to 95% after 22 minutes of viewing.
With no guidance, patrol guards follow routines predictable enough for criminals to easily outsmart them. Data from the FBI shows that in 84% of property crime cases, criminals fled from the scene and were never arrested.
