How CCTV Cameras Can Deter Bullies and Vandals

Posted Global Vue by Global Vue on 28/09/2016 09:58:00

It's a sad reality that bullying and vandalism in schools is a regular occurrence. The reasons why someone bullies can range from them not being happy at home, to being jealous of their bullying target to simply not understanding what they're doing is wrong. Sometimes the bullies need help too.

To prevent bullying and vandalism, many educational professionals have taken the step to install CCTV systems in schools to monitor behaviour within their walls which can only help to reveal any issues that may arise. Everybody should be able to strive to work, learn or play in the best atmosphere as possible - and CCTV cameras offer a great opportunity to achieve those aims.

CCTV Cameras and Bullying.

Many children won't report the fact that they're being bullied to teachers or even their own parents, in fear of further repercussions from the bully. This will put them in an impossible position and will only be of a negative effect to them - the bullying will continue and the victim's own wellbeing will suffer as a result. A CCTV system in schoolswill give teachers an opportunity to identify the bullies, without even having to put the victim under any pressure to reveal anything that would get them into 'trouble' with the bully.

Having CCTV is also a good way to alert parents on the behaviour of their children. Even though parents have the best of intentions towards their child, sometimes only their own eyes will make them believe that they are behaving badly and that their behaviour needs correcting. This is where a teacher can take the opportunity to keep the parent onside, as they are now in a position to suggest the best course of action and work with the parent in order to improve the child's behaviour. In time, this will help to solve both problems and hopefully contribute to a better working atmosphere for all in the school.

CCTV as a physical deterrent.

Aside from a CCTV camera's main function to record images, a camera can also act as a physical reminder to someone who is perhaps thinking about partaking in behaviour that is seen as anti-social. The sight of a camera in a school may stop someone from vandalising property, for example. Over time, their behaviour may also change knowing that they're constantly being watched, significantly reducing the chances that they'll ever cause any harm to the school and its property.

So whatever behaviour you need to deter, a CCTV system represents an ideal way for educational institutions to work with parents and pupils alike to achieve their aims.
