(CCTV) Closed Circuit TV: Maximising your security potential

CCTV or Closed circuit television has traditionally been thought of as a camera system for shops or banks to monitor comings and goings. Not only are they used to watch customers and catch or deter potential shoplifters but also to keep track of staff activities. Sometimes systems are installed as a matter of precaution and other times because an issue has been identified and the cameras are needed to determine who the culprits are and provide evidence.

Personal Protection Officers (PPO) – Recon’s answer to bodyguards

Bodyguards have not always had a good reputation – too often they are portrayed as hulking men with limited technical ability and dubious communication skills. Their thuggish approach of intimidation to gain control, not to mention their sometimes questionable backgrounds have meant that the bodyguard profession has been seen as less than professional. The last thing any security company wants is to appear in a newspaper article like the one in the Dominion Post in December 2012.
