Security cameras are everywhere, from the grocery store, to the malls, the specialty shops, parking lots and casino's. The problem comes in when places use them for something other than security screening, as is the case with this New Jersey casino.

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey (AP) -- Women, beware: Those "eye in the sky" surveillance cameras used by casinos don't just look for card cheats and crooked dealers.

www.cnn.com...

Some times the wrong people are behind the cameras, and security is not what they are looking at. This camera use should be monitored to make sure these people don't get to use these for their personal enjoyment. Peeping Toms have always existed, but modern technology makes it easier for them to "enjoy their sport"!

Having worked security before, I can tell you that this kind of thing is the norm, not the exception... Not that it's excusable, just pointing out that it is far more common than one might think.

I should point out that I was in the patrolling part of security, not camera watcher...though often those guys would go, "hey look at this!".

Admiring the view is one thing, purposefully zooming in, focusing on certain areas, trying to look up dresses, etc. though, is definitely crossing the line. Not to mention, if ever seen on the tapes, I'd imagine it'd be a quick way to get fired.

Security cams in changing rooms or bathrooms however, should be right out, or at the very least monitored by same sex security officers.

Dummies that they were, these two idiots were at least fired. Too bad it cost their employer $80K.

On a secondary note, the reason this came to light was that

Tipped off by a Caesars surveillance supervisor, investigators with the state Division of Gaming Enforcement obtained videotapes from the hidden cameras.


I know it's hard for some to understand, but I have a real problem with guys like this supervisor. I just don't like people who run to "tell" on somone. It reminds me of the tattle-tale kid in school, or Rifki in Midnight Express.

The right thing to do is notify casino management. Then if nothing is done, maybe go to the authorities. Maybe thats what was done in this case; I don't know.

Wow I guess I should forget about a career in security :-). So you mean to say they have security cameras in dressing rooms?
