Petrol Station Theft Cut

by msecadm4921

In Iceland ESSO Petrol has reduced petrol thefts by half with the installation of cameras at 14 stations.

ESSO, one of the largest petrol station chains in Iceland, worked with installer Nortek to design a system specific to the needs of its 24-hour stations. Two of the smallest unmanned stations of the group were installed with four cameras each, while the other larger service stations were designed with from nine to 27 cameras each. The installion was to protect properties from vandalism. However, since putting up the Pelco cameras, theft of fuel has been cut. About 40 per cent of those who do manage to steal fuel are identified at once because their license plate information has been recorded. Using the plate number, the station owner can find out the culprit’s identity, call him and remind him to pay their ?forgotten? gas bill. The other 10 per cent get away because they are driving stolen cars, have stolen license plates, or have something such as a plastic bag covering the plate number. Visit www.pelco.com
