How Much Do Residential / Home Camera Systems Solve Or Prevent Crime?

A member asked this.

On the plus, there are numerous new video clips weekly of people using their home cameras to document and even sometimes to catch a crime in the act.

However, we have never seen any statistics or attempt at quantifying that.

Anyone with any info here?
