Surveillance cameras are beginning to play a larger role in identifying bad actors trying to victimize us.
I have installed a couple of live and motion sensing HD video cameras. I have been reviewing the scenes they capture for nearly a year now. Other than an 3 AM prowler in our neighborhood a couple of months ago (which the police responded to immediately thwarting any possible crime), no other suspicious activity has been evident.
It is reassuring to see how thoughtfully most drivers, bikers, runners, dog walkers, and strollers are. The questionable actors pop right out of the scene and are recorded for all to see.

That's fantastic, for two reasons that I didn't know existed:
1. Technology is so advanced that a person can be caught this way
2. Residential burglary is a felony
