Three ways remote monitoring helps to prevent crime
Recently we dealt with an incident that highlighted the importance of remote monitoring in preventing crimes.
Remote monitoring is a reactive security measure – that means our security operators are only notified of an incident occurring when CCTV cameras and detectors on site are triggered and an alarm is raised. Remote monitoring cannot predict when an alarm is going to be raised or why it might be raised – but when we do receive an alarm we act swiftly to analyse the situation and react appropriately.
Yet that doesn’t mean there’s not a place for remote monitoring in preventing crimes from occurring.
When our operators responded to an alarm from a petrol station on Sunday 12 March at 01:26 they quickly spotted an individual acting suspiciously on a bike near the carwash area. The incident was straightforward enough. The police were called and consequently attended the site to move the individual on. No offences could be determined to warrant an arrest.
