Letter: Security cameras

I was watching the news on TV the other night and, as so often happens, there was a story about the robbery of a convenience store. There was also a picture of the supposed perp from a security camera and a plea by law enforcement for assistance in identifying the supposed perp. I would be very happy to assist if I could, but the picture, as usual, shows a view of someone in a hoody seen from above so that you can’t be sure if it is a male, female, robot, zombie, etc.

Has anyone thought about mounting the security camera behind a transparent shatterproof window in the checkout counter with a view upward so that we might actually see a face? It would seem like a no-brainer. The store in Notus would have especially benefited from such an installation since it was in an isolated location.
