Increase in crime in Germany: The importance of video surveillance

Anstieg der Kriminalität in Deutschland: Die Bedeutung von Videoüberwachung

The latest police statistics, presented by Federal Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser, are alarming: Germany has recorded a 5.5 percent increase in crime , a sign of a worsening internal security situation. In particular, thefts, including burglaries, car thefts and shoplifting, have increased. Berlin leads the list of federal states, followed by Bremen and Hamburg.

There are many reasons for this worrying development. Minister Faeser stresses that the propensity to violence has increased in society.

Given these worrying figures, the question arises as to what effective measures can be taken to improve security. One effective solution is the use of surveillance technologies such as Weber Protect surveillance cameras and video surveillance systems in general.

Why does video surveillance make sense in this context?

  • Deterrence of crime: Visible surveillance cameras have a deterrent effect on potential offenders. The presence of cameras can help prevent theft and other crimes because offenders are aware that their actions are being recorded.

  • Investigation and clarification: Should a crime nevertheless be committed, surveillance cameras provide valuable evidence for the investigating authorities. The recordings can help to identify perpetrators and bring them to justice.

  • Improving the sense of security: Increased video surveillance can help to increase citizens' sense of security. Knowing that public places and private spaces are monitored makes people feel safer and more willing to move around freely and without worry.
In times of rising crime and changing social dynamics, it is more important than ever to rely on preventive and effective security measures. Video surveillance is an effective way to increase security and strengthen trust in public order.
