lbc.co.uk Homeowners should install their own CCTV cameras to help detectives solve crimes, Britain's top police officer told LBC. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe told Beverley Turner that eye-level cameras will help catch burglary suspects. He told LBC: "We’ve got a strategy to encourage people, with their cameras, is to move them down to eye level." But he warned they needed to be positioned correctly to be useful, adding: "Over the last year as facial recognition software has got better we can apply the software to the images of burglaries or robberies and we can compare those images with the images we take when we arrest people. "What we need to be able to do is to be able to compare that photograph with the images we have of people committing a crime. "Taking the tops of their heads is not that helpful for facial recognition which relies on the eyes and the configuration of the area around the nose and the mouth. So we’re trying to get people to, ideally, add another camera at face level."
