The Adams Police Dept also says That business should check their recording cameras.

"They recommend home and business owners, take a minute and go through the below checklist if you have a video surveillance system. You might be surprised what you find. Surveillance systems provide an extra set of eyes and security but only when the cameras are working, the review/backup function is accessible and the camera view isn't obstructed. Make sure your system is ready to provide you that back up support, if you ever need it!"
