Welcome to the
"Coppers Corner"
section of
Doktor Jons

Guide to Closed Circuit TV

Doktor Jon does his bit to help
the Police with their enquiries.

TRUSTED - Target Recognition Using Surveillance Technology for Evidence and Detection - A campaign to improve the effectiveness of existing video surveillance security systems.

What can CCTV offer modern policing?

If you’ve entered this part of Doktor Jons website, then hopefully you're a professional employed in a law enforcement related role.

If you’re not and you’ve managed to get this far, please let me know and I’ll have to take immediate steps to improve the security procedures!! O.K., fair cop, there are no specific ‘security checks’ for this part of the site.

After all,
Doktor Jon wouldn’t trust current internet security as far as he can describe it (and that’s not very far!!).

Seriously though, some topics in this section are discussional ‘free access’, whilst those related to operational matters will need to be specifically requested.

Simply register your interest by e-mail, and the requested information will be forwarded to the appropriate location, once I’m satisfied that you are a bona fide law enforcement professional.

Anyway, back to the matter in hand; the growing role for CCTV in crime prevention and detection.

If you’ve browsed through other parts of this site, particularly those areas concerned with
system design and profiling, you will probably already be aware that there are very many factors that need to be considered in order to successfully use CCTV as a crime reduction / detection tool.

I deliberately use the term tool, because as far as Doktor Jon is concerned, surveillance cameras should not (as is often the considered but unspoken belief of politicians), be regarded as a viable alternative to conventional policing, or indeed some kind of magic wand.

The obvious strength of using CCTV is to provide an invaluable source of evidential information which will help police officers to carry out their duties more effectively.

Before I forget, just in case you're not sure why this section is called "Coppers Corner", it’s simply because a ‘Copper’ is english slang for a police officer!
