Danish Housing Complex Reduces Vandalism Using IP Video Surveillance
Video surveillance is a powerful tool for monitoring crime and preventing vandalism, as seen in the Tingbjerg housing complex in a suburb of Copenhagen, Denmark. Here they have experienced a significant reduction in vandalism since the installation of surveillance cameras in basements and laundry facilities. From January 2006 to August 2007, repairs due to vandalism had cost Tingbjerg more than DKK 1.1 million (approx. â?¬150,000). Thanks to the surveillance solution, these expenses decreased greatly within just a few months.
