Fleetwood Camera Security System (FCSS)
[For our detailed rationale and policy on the FCSS Program, click here – FBIA Security System Policy & Grant ]
Security camera systems act as an important crime deterrent. On a strata (residential /commercial) property on the 15100 block of Fraser Highway, the installation of four (4) visible, outdoor cameras and a 30 day recording device reduced overall incidents on and around the property by an estimated 85%. The investment of close to $4000 dollars by the business owners and residents was deemed a “costly yet successful investment” and they are considering adding more cameras to the system.
Project IRIS (Integrated Resources for Investigations and Safety) is a voluntary security camera registry that assists the Surrey RCMP in solving crimes in the community. In simple terms, property owners, both residential and commercial, can register their OUTWARD facing cameras with the City of Surrey. Should an incident or crime happen in the area, the RCMP can then contact the registered camera owner to request access to recorded video footage in the hopes that in can assist with quickly solving the crime.
The Fleetwood BIA believes that property owners and businesses can benefit from enhanced security which acts as a deterrent and aids the speed of investigations. Camera installations, as well as lighting and signage, act as deterrents toward potential crimes.
The Fleetwood BIA believes that the effectiveness of purchasing and maintaining proper camera system makes them a priority for the Fleetwood BIA’s Security Enhancement Program. Surveillance cameras have been proven to be in instrumental in the aid of investigations and crime prevention according to the Surrey RCMP. Businesses, as well as their employees and customers, benefit from greater peace of mind through enhanced security.
The Fleetwood BIA encourages businesses to report ALL incidents. Incidents can be reported through 911 if an emergency, the non-emergency line, or the Fleetwood BIA.
