B: Prosecution – thieves and shoplifters may be caught on camera and this can help catch and prosecute them
C: Fear reduction – if everyone knows that there is a camera, they may feel safer in or around your business, thus preventing potential criminals from attacking
D: Monitoring and intervention – if there is a security guard monitoring the area through CCTV system, he or she may act on any suspicious behavior and thus pr[box] Content goes here[/box] event a crime from occurring.
