In September 1968, Olean, New York was the first city in the United States to install video cameras along its main business street in an effort to fight crime. Another early appearance was in 1973 in Times Square in New York City. The NYPD installed it in order to deter crime that was occurring in the area; however, crime rates did not appear to drop much due to the cameras. Nevertheless, during the 1980s video surveillance began to spread across the country specifically targeting public areas. It was seen as a cheaper way to deter crime compared to increasing the size of the police departments. Some businesses as well, especially those that were prone to theft, began to use video surveillance. From the mid 1990s on, police departments across the country installed an increasing number of cameras in various public spaces including housing projects, schools and public parks departments. CCTV later became common in banks and stores to discourage theft, by recording evidence of criminal activity. In 1998, 3,000 CCTV systems were in use in New York City. The studies included in the meta analysis used quasi experimental evaluation designs that involve before and after measures of crime in experimental and control areas. However, several researchers have pointed to methodological problems associated with this research literature.

9. ” I was afraid to touch it, but I did because I was more afraid not to. I called to tell Vivint to cancel the contract and come get their equipment, and they told me I would be responsible for paying the 5 year monitoring contract in full when I was told by their rep that if I had to cancel before the contract expired there would be a minimal cancellation fee of $200. I have four pages of documented correspondence with Vivint – nothing but one problem after another. These are just the highlights, folks. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!I WILL be paying a visit to the Florida State Attorney’s office. I’ve HAD IT!I had the same thing, the young man kept saying I am not selling any thing, I said okay then thank you for informing me and closed the door, he knocks again and starts the sales pitch. When I asked “I thought you were not selling any thing?” he just kept talking about the FBI statistics on break ins, I then relized it was an alarm company and asked him to leave, he was still talking when I closed the door. I never thought to call the city, I get all kinds of people, selling meat off a truck, alarms, even had a Rainbow vacum lady, usually you say no and they leave, these people were insistant that they were not selling any thing. We are one of those 13 customers that Alarm Pro lost and I have to say we don’t regret it. First off, our sales guy was wonderful, he wasn’t pushy or aggressive and really took the time to make sure we knew what we were doing and that we were happy and didn’t say any of those things that were mentioned in the article.
