Do Security Cameras Stop Crime?

While you can’t simply say they stop crime, or that they directly reduce it, the evidence points to that they are a major deterrent for criminals looking to successfully burglarize a home. Many studies where criminals were surveyed show that they moved on to other homes in most cases if there were visible cameras at a home they were looking to break into.

A recent Municipal Technical Advisory Survey took a comprehensive look at camera usage and found that yes, CCTV cameras are effective in deterring crime. However, they’re more effective when paired with other elements like lighting. So they can’t simply claim to stop crime as a stand-alone solution.
