CCTV is not necessarily watched constantly, but it is used to help prosecute people in the event an incident is reported.Its presence alone is a deterrant. I'm not talking about cameras taking over from gardai, but as a measure in assisting them assist victims. Lastly I don't believe c/bar is short of gardai anymore, I just believe when it comes to night time fracases, then tend to take a long time getting to them, so that when the arrive its over...and all thats left is paper work.
