Budget cuts to CCTV:
How Can I Ensure the Safety of my Premises?

National and local newspapers all over the UK have been in a flurry recently over government cuts which are affecting CCTV in our town and city centres. With 20% of local authorities cutting the number and the capability of their CCTV provision, public surveillance is in crisis.

CCTV in Crisis

Javed Khan, Chief Executive of Victim Support, has expressed his concern over these cuts. In an interview with The Independent (www.independent.co.uk) he highlighted CCTV's effectiveness in the prevention of crime and the prosecution of perpetrators:

CCTV can be a particularly useful tool for dealing with serious crimes such as rape, robbery and assault,' he said, adding that significant cuts to CCTV provision were 'worrying.' So, with the threat of rising crime in your local area, what can you do to ensure your premises are safe?

Whether your premises are domestic or commercial, RIDING can install a CCTV security package that is right for you.

We are currently responding to the backlash of the public cuts to CCTV by providing free company health-checks to businesses all over the UK.
