In the city of Oakland, CA 40 surveillance cameras have been installed on International Boulevard within just the past few months. As the city has recently seen a rise in robberies, vandalism and other violent crimes, 80 more are expected to be installed as well. These tools are helping the police to catch their suspects, including several people who were wanted for stealing gold jewelry.
According to the Contra Costa Times, the cameras are becoming a staple for police investigation. Even Mayor Jean Quan’s spokeswoman said that this is one way where they can keep an eye on the streets 24 hours a day. This way the merchants can feel safer about their businesses as well.
Before the surveillance cameras were put in place, merchants were arming themselves and putting themselves in harm’s way. Some business owners have even found that keeping a gun in their store, and using it, has only brought more violence their way. With the security cameras in place, now the police and the merchants are finding the solution to the problem.
