So the question is are home security cameras worth it? Well, listen to this! It’s every family’s nightmare. Toddler Lucie Wilding was following her mother to the car to go on the school run when she was hit by a cyclist who was riding on the pavement and dragged along the floor. The cyclist fell off his bike, before riding away without an apology.
Lucie escaped with cuts and bruises – and the whole thing was captured on the family’s home CCTV. The horrific footage powerfully shows the dangers of cycling on pavements and has played a part in a public campaign to identify the cyclist responsible. It’s an interesting argument for the benefits of home CCTV.
The police are also keen to encourage the use of CCTV. Earlier this year Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, head of London’s Metropolitan Police, said more homeowners should install CCTV cameras outside their houses. He said homeowners and businesses could help the police to solve crimes, and encouraged people to install them at eye-level so facial recognition could be used to identify criminals.
