High coverage CCTV is effective at reducing crime in car parks when used with other interventions such as improved light, notices about CCTV, painting, fencing, payment schemes and security.

The international evidence suggests that CCTV when used in combination with other interventions can reduce crime in car parks by up to 54% when there is high coverage.

There is conflicting evidence that CCTV alone as a general widespread crime prevent measure can reduce crime.
