The Police tend to find its a waste of time just arresting, charging etc,its often the same people fighting / dealing or causing issues. Using the CCTV they tie in "pub watch" schemes and Police orders banning individuals from the venues or the areas.
To work you need the full circle, councils, businesses and Police to buy in. If you don't its seen as an extra cost and wont be used effectively :)
"Chronic Nuisance Properties are those which receive three minor complaints in a 30 day period..."
Required upon COMPLAINT? Not upon conviction?
What a great new lever to push! Three noise complaints in a month? Thousands of dollars in costs as well as the disruption of an installation?
In one case, a disgruntled individual made verifiably false official statements which successfully enlisted the coercive power of government to place demands upon business resources. Resultant government inspections cost about half a person-day. Proving the statement false required more than an additional person-day. Beyond these costs, no long term ill occurred, but those false claims had the (unrealized) potential to terminate the business.
The individual wasn't punished -- for him: mission accomplished.
As a potential downside for the business owner, some clientele, even those doing no wrong, may simply not like the notion that police may be "watching" (though live view access is not required and is unlikely) and stop frequenting the business, affecting revenue.
Why would the clientele think the police were involved at all, and not just think that the business put in a security system on their own?
Related: I just saw this article about a town in Iowa expanding their surveillance ordinance to businesses other than convenience and liquor stores:
While the current ordinance essentially requires convenience stores and liquor stores to have cameras, the proposal would add banks and credit unions, carry-out restaurants, coin dealers, payday lenders, firearm dealers, hotels, cellular phone dealers, money transmission services, pawn brokers, pharmacies, scrap metal dealers and second-hand goods dealers.
Most of these businesses are likely to have systems anyway (which the police acknowledge in the article) but interesting that they require it by law for this many categories.
This was mandated by the State of Florida in the late 80's for C-Stores and the like, open after 11PM along with lighting, clear windows, etc. Lots of pushback and rebellion from C-Stores until they could buy $300 DIY systems from Sams!
From the perspective of local municipalities… for private property deterrent alarm systems.
No permits, no registration, no regulations, no requirements of any kind, except fines/fees for false police reports, paid by the caller. Calls from monitoring firms for emergency police response to private property deterrent alarm systems will receive the same priority as all other citizens.
Emergency police response only IF witness to a 911 type emergency. Lower priority response would apply for all other "suspicion calls".
Remote Video or remote audio could qualify as remote witness (but not ECV).This would be motivation for private upgrade to audio/video witness technology if wanting the emergency service.
