Experts See Technology Contributing to Detroit Crime Decrease

Posted By ESA Communications, Wednesday, November 14, 2012
The most recent statistics from the FBI showed a decrease in crime in Detroit, including property crime, according to a story from the Detroit News. Experts cited in the story attributed technological improvements as a key factor in the 2011 decline. Police can react more quickly, and with precision, because of sophisticated software programs.

While the story did not specifically identify electronic surveillance as one of the technologies, ESA believes that Detroit and other communities across the United States are safer because of the improving technologies our member companies deploy.

If criminals find more sophisticated methods to break the law, we need to increase our movement to deploy higher technology to prevent crime. Video surveillance is, of course, one of those improvements. It helps law enforcement focus on high crime areas, prevent crimes from occurring, and aid in apprehension.

We urge our membership to continue working with law enforcement to make communities safer. Better technology will continue to make inroads as our society grows increasingly sophisticated. The ability to identify and target problem areas is a major opportunity for electronic security companies.

There are many other technologies we will be able to deliver in the years ahead to help law enforcement. As our industry makes inroads, we’ll see more stories like Detroit. We look forward to those results.
