"Agree or disagree: The prevention of crime is more important than the protection of privacy

I think the prevention of crime is more important than the protection of privacy because much information save time, deprive a criminal’s free, and prevent the recurrence of crime.
First, more information the police have, more quickly they solve the problems. Even if a child is kidnapped and they don’t know where he or she is, the neighbors knowing the appearance of him or her can help them to find the child. Without such a clue, the life of the child may not be secure.
Second, setting cameras at some places in apartments or shopping centers can discourage those who is going to commit a crime to take an action. Being watched in a monitor will keep the criminals from taking merchandises on the shelf in convenience stores.
Third, knowing a lot of local information in advance makes it easy for the police or the PTA to take a patrol, and this leads to the prevention of the recurrence. For example, in the case that a child in neighbors is suffering from the domestic violence, if they know the child and his or her family and often communicate, they may be able to notice there is something unordinary he or she is.
In conclusion, prevailing information shortens the investigation time, keeps the feeling of criminals away, and stops the crime from recurring. From these points, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, so preventing crime should be put before protecting privacy." (239)
A: "Agree or disagree: Crime prevention is more important than privacy protection. (A bit more concise and follows the writing style needed.O

I think the prevention of crime is more important than the protection of privacy because *more* information saves time, deprives a criminal’s free, and prevents the recurrence of crime. (present tense - not sure what a criminal’s free is)
First, *the* more information the police have, *the* more quickly they can solve problems. Even if a child is kidnapped and they don’t know where he or she is, the neighbors can help them by knowing the child’s appearance in order to find them. (some better wording)

Without such a clue, the life of the child may not be secure (maybe better to say ”saved”.)
Second, setting *up* cameras at some places *like* apartments or shopping centers can discourage those who *are considering commiting* a crime. Being watched *on* a monitor will keep criminals from taking merchandises *off* the shelfs in convenience stores.
Third, *having* local information in advance makes it easy for the police or the PTA (this is the common abbreviation for parent teacher association. did you mean that?) to take patrol *which leads* to the prevention of the recurrence. If for example, a child suffering from domestic violence and neighbors knows the family, they may be able to notice when there is something unusual going on.
In conclusion, more information shortens investigation times but keeps criminals away and stops crime from recurring. Considering these points, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages (drawbacks), so preventing crime should be put before (given precedence over) protecting privacy." (239)
Q: Once I feel sick, I feel hard.So prevention is better than cure. does this sound natural?
