Security cameras have been used for crime deterrent by police departments since the 1970s. The cameras were first used used to monitor public areas in hopes of deterring criminal activity. Surveillance cameras are used in many businesses as a way to deter crime, as well. Before the early 1970s closed circuit television or CCTV, systems were primarily used to monitor rocket launches and to monitor industrial machinery operations. Typically, the cameras were located in areas deemed too dangerous for humans. A CCTV system is a closed system, which means the data is transferred to a dedicated monitor. The data, unlike broadcast television is not broadcasted to the public. Business owners, since the first installation of surveillance cameras in New York City, have recognized that security camera systems can be used to protect their assets. Properly installed systems help protect a business’s possessions, as well as providing security to their employees. Subsequently, security system installation for retail stores in Coral Springs has been ongoing for decades.
