“Quite obviously, there was not a quality, working video surveillance system in the above restaurant. If there had been, the police would have had the media display the perpetrator’s picture far and wide,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “If you own a restaurant, get  yourself a video surveillance system before  something like this happens to one of your employees. There mere presence of working cameras will often stop a crime before it happens. Below you will find a number of articles on our websites that pertain to video systems for commercial use. Feel free to read and watch, then contact myself or Ivra Bassette, our resident restaurant expert here at ESC.”
