Police cameras studies look at long-term effects on crime
from The Post-Standard
Few studies have looked at the long-term impact of police security cameras in reducing crime. The John Jay College of Criminal Justice, in New York City, knew of no authoritative studies on police cameras. The Police Executive Research Fund, in Washington, D.C., couldn't point to any research either, though they did share testimonies from police chiefs touting the technology. The biggest problem may be the systems are too new: Experts say the lasting effects of cameras may not be known until several years' worth of data can be analyzed. The few published studies point to varying levels of success.
