Video Surveillance at Myrtle Beach Hotels and Resorts is Important
Myrtle Beach Communications has worked closely with many hotels and resort in the Grand Strand area to provide clear and concise video surveillance systems. What we have found is that every customer has their own reasons for having commercial security cameras installed on their property.
Some of the top reasons mentioned by our customers in the Coastal Carolina and Myrtle Beach area are listed below.
Which of these reasons for video surveillance do you find most useful?
Security Cameras for Criminal Defense
- Video cameras can be used for deterring criminals or even mischievous kids. When they see cameras present, they are less likely to commit criminal activities, such as theft, assault, vandalism, etc.
- When a perpetrator does decide to make these mistakes and they are caught on camera….this makes them a lot easier to apprehend. Public safety offices can and do use clips from video surveillance cameras and distribute to news outlets and social media in order to apprehend suspects. We have seen this in action even this month, eventually leading to the capture of the suspects shown on video.
Sense of Security for Patrons
Video Surveillance for Loss Prevention
The use of security cameras is a great tool for loss prevention.
- The cameras help resorts combat theft from visitors in areas such as gift shops and convenience stores or even items found in common areas such as hallways, pool, and recreation areas.
- They also great at combating theft from employees. Not only does theft from employees include stealing of physical items, but also loss of revenues because of lost time and inferior work performance…..this is when you find that employees may not be putting in the hours that they state or failing to complete the tasks they are assigned.
