I doubt anyone would steal the camera since they would have to cut the cable to remove it.
Since you don't want to have to run wires from the back to front, the easiest way I think would work is to connect the camera power to the back up lights so it will come on when in reverse. In order to turn it on at will, you could wire a switch to the reverse switch in the shifter. The only downside to this is that the back up lights would come on when you press the switch.
I think you may need to run at least one wire to the camera for manual control.
Also, I love the steering wheel on this year. I wish I could switch my '09 for the '12 version.
