City Surveillance Cameras Prove Beneficial According to Recent Study

Police surveillance cameras in urban areas are generating positive results in deterring crime rates, but their costs and benefits vary significantly depending on how the systems are set up and monitored, according to a report published last week by the Urban Institute, a Washington, DC based social policy research group.
Homeland Security Today has published an article about a recent study entitled "Evaluating the Use of Public Surveillance Cameras for Crime Control and Prevention - A Summary" by the Urban Institute - a Washington, DC based social policy research group. The article is entitled "Report: Surveillance Camera Benefits Against Crime Vary By City", by Phil Leggiere, HSToday, September 26, 2011.
