2. There are many places where private security is used. For one almost all celebrities have some kind of security. Hospitals also have security at all time. A lot of businesses to as well. I think that security is very well at preventing crime. Although some people do get around it. If you were to eliminate security, I believe the crime rate for that particular place would shoot up rapidly. If walmart didn't have cameras and someone behind those cameras, how many people do you think would steal from there? Walmart would have to close down, there would be so much stealing. Yes they do not catch everyone, but they do catch a lot of people and just by doing that, it is enough to keep people from coming back and doing the same thing.
