The Effect of Inflation
Inflation is ever-present but has the potential to become a threat when it grows at an exponential rate. The current sharp rise in prices demolishes the purchasing power of people and businesses alike lending businesses both large and small to re-evaluate their operations and priorities.
With the cost of living being driven up and even the essentials becoming unaffordable to large groups of society, a rise in certain types of crime have been shown to be linked, including anti-social behavior shoplifting, theft, insurance fraud and robbery.
Cost vs Need
Although this type of solution does not stop crimes being committed, the introduction of equipment such as body-worn cameras has been shown to act as a deterrent and produce positive results wherever it has been implemented. The power to record, store and review tamper-free videos and photos has been invaluable to many industries to provide evidence whether it is for health and safety, insurance, personnel safety or criminal offences.
