The proverbial question when it comes to video surveillance security for municipalities is…
” Does an investment in video surveillance security for municipalities pay dividends to cities that fund these projects — sometimes to the tune of millions of dollars in installation, service and live video monitoring costs?” Is it possible that even after such enormous investment there is still a greater return on investment and increased security? The answer is a resounding “yes”!

Many theorists suggest that that the sheer fact of placing security cameras in any given area will drive criminal to another less protected area. But statistics are showing that there is no real merit to the theory. Research has actually found that when municipal video security systems are implemented that criminal activity diminishes everywhere, not just the part that is being monitored. Even though municipalities might find the initial burden on their budget a little too hard to swallow, the long turn return is enormous both in R.O.I. as well as highly enhanced security.
When you do the math, video surveillance security for municipalities is definitely a viable option.
