@Matthew. Try something else.
- A training centre for existing security personnel (right up your alley).
- A centre for training better quality helpers (which may enhance their income beyond the statutory minimum).
- A training centre for driving etiquette and skills (you might try to secure a gummint contract to send traffic offenders your way).
- It's hard to get a cheap pint, so a pub in a low-rent area would be nice. A good variety of local and imported ales and lagers on tap would be very much appreciated.
a) Do you feel that security alarms or CCTV surveillance is necessaryin the home?
b) Do you have an alarm or CCTV surveillance syetem in your flat or villiage house?
c) Do you wish to have one but just do not know where to find?
a) I think alarms are. We have had a lot of break ins in our village over the three years I have lived in it (7 times in a village of 12 houses), including my own house at 4 in the morning - though ironically when we were burgled we did actually have the alarm installed but it wasn't activated because I didn't think it was necessary. I think they are useful at night but less so during the day as people ignore them.
I think CCTV is less effective, as do the police that I have spoken to regarding neighbourhood watch issues. Our neighbours were broken into a month or so ago, during the day. They have CCTV everywhere and an alarm and it didn't bother the burglars at all as the house was empty, they were in and out in no time , and they wore masks to prevent identification. The only benefit of CCTV was that the neighbour was alerted on her mobile phone to the break in when the alarm went off and her phone then showed her the footage of the burglars so she could see what they were up to - still couldn't do anything about it though.
c) Security system companies are very easy to find here.
we've had 1 break-in in the village in 5+ years. most likely by IIs.... we do get a lot of those in our area, living up in the hills...
