We live in an area where many crimes occur. There was one time when we woke up to the sound of a woman screaming for help. It turned out she was robbed of her cellphone. Two men in a motor cycle sped past her and grabbed her cellphone. There was also an incident when one vendor was stabbed to death after an altercation. The suspect was never found. One time some gang members beat up a teenager in our street. Good thing they where arrested and charged with Felony Assault.
As a way to deter some criminals to do bad things in our street our officials installed a CCTV Camera in our neighborhood and because of this our area is more peaceful now. There are less crimes and the homeowners feel safer. CCTV cameras will make the criminal think twice before doing something, well, criminal. If that doesn’t deter them, the cameras will reveal their identity which will help in their arrest and hopefully, prosecution. I hope that in the years to come, public places will be installed with these cameras to make our streets safer.
