Bank Robbery Shows Importance of Digital Cameras

No one wants to see crime. But sometimes good things result from a criminal act.


Just recently, a bank in Waukesha, WI was robbed. The thief’s image was caught on video and a picture pulled from the clip. That video was ours. You can see the picture here.


The image demonstrates the importance of “digital” cameras. Older cameras in businesses could still be using analog technology. With updated digital cameras, there is much higher resolution, hence an enhanced image. That allowed H&S Protection to reproduce a still image from the video clip to help Waukesha police in their search for the suspect.


We hate crime. But our job is to help deter, and sometimes aid in the apprehension of criminals who have broken into businesses.


In this case, it was good that our customer had recently installed new digital cameras. It made a big difference in terms of the clarity of images captured from the robbery. Sometimes good things follow from a bad event. We’ll continue to support the police in their hunt for this individual.


When the holdup alarm was sent to our monitoring center, we were on the line with Waukesha police in 14 seconds. That’s service we’re proud of.

We also follow up with customers in these situations. Every time we get an alarm, we look into it the next day, contacting the customer involved. We work hard to get it right, follow-up and deliver security systems that keep getting better.
