Wikipedia defines security as “the degree of resistance to, or protection from, harm”. As irresistible as the concept of total and absolute security may be, it remains but a theoretical construct divorced from the day-to-day reality in the Western world. As a result, modern society has resigned to embracing certain risks as unavoidable: for instance, traffic accidents and economic crises, such as stock market fluctuations, among others.
Given the escalating military conflicts in the Middle East and the rising number of terror acts worldwide, security today seems beyond the reach of the European citizen. The good news is that the latest advancements in video surveillance technologies now allow you to take your own security and the safety of your nearest and dearest in your own hands.
Destructive behavior driven by pent-up aggression, drug or alcohol consumption, can lead to severe bodily damage of people and property. Under such influences, usually law-abiding citizens become capable of shocking acts of extreme consequences. Surveillance cameras lower the sense of impunity and help curb cases of hooliganism and violence.
