Sports clubs can often be the targets of criminals, who will look to rob money from cash tills in the bars, equipment from gyms or changing rooms, or break into members’ parked vehicles. Vandals can also damage changing facilities and playing surfaces. CCTV can be a practical and highly effective way of discouraging such attacks on club property. Here, we’ll take a closer look at why installing a CCTV system can save your sports club time, money and hassle.
When events are not taking place, small sports clubs can often present vulnerable targets for criminals. Bar takings are often left in clubhouses, while expensive training equipment also offers plenty of temptation to thieves. It is impossible to have human beings monitor premises 24 hours a day, so a CCTV system combined with some kind of perimeter security can be a good way of protecting your club’s premises.
CCTV and perimeter security can also play a part in helping to keep vandals away from playing surfaces. Surfaces are often damaged by criminals driving vehicles over them, or by damaging them in other ways. Even relatively innocent dog walkers can cause damage if they can access your pitch. Fencing and cameras offer plenty of discouragement to those people who might vandalise or otherwise damage playing surfaces.
Players’ vehicles and property
Keeping an eye on players’ valuables while games are taking place can also be tricky. Many criminals have taken advantage of the relatively lax protection for players’ vehicles and property that many clubs have in place for changing rooms and car parks. CCTV detection systems mean that changing facilities and car parks can be monitored easily. Cameras can also provide footage for police to use to catch culprits if incidents of robbery or vandalism have occurred. The visible presence of cameras also provides another deterrent for criminals.
