  • Yes, crime cameras watch people which makes them less likely to do crime.

    It's a fact that people are less likely to do things they know are frowned in society if they know they are being watched or could be being watched. Even in the case of a criminal who decides to do crime anyway knowing there is a camera watching, other potential criminals could see the news and realize that the camera helped identify the criminal.

  • It helps after, but it does not deter

    No, I do not believe that crime cameras deter crime. It can be seen on television almost daily where people are videoed committing crimes. In some cases the perpetrator looks into the camera giving a even better view of his or her face. The camera, sometimes, is covered or even destroyed before it is able to catch a glimpse of the criminal, so they know that it is there and still commit the crime anyway. Again I think they help solve crimes if they are still intact, but they do not deter most criminals.
