New Use For Spy Cameras

We have been writing about the uses of hidden cameras for years now but have never seen or heard about hidden cameras being used by car dealerships in this manner.
One BMW car dealership in Baltimore, Maryland says that many customers file false claims about damage to their cars when they bring them in for service.

“People would say we damaged their car, and we’d say, ‘If you don’t mind, we have to check the camera for insurance purposes,'” said Sterry, service manager at BMW of Catonsville in Baltimore. “We’d find, about 90 percent of the time, the damage was already there when they brought the car in for service.”

They installed a hidden camera that monitors and records vehicle drop-off and delivery spots and other areas inside the dealership.

The dealership uses it as a defensive tool because so many people were reporting damage to their cars when they brought it in for service. It has helped save the store tens of thousands of dollars in false vehicle-damage reports. It also has helped nab bad employees and thwart potential vehicle thefts.

It was costing the dealership $3,000-$4,000 a month to repair the cars. Most of the claims were false.

Frats And Campus Assaults

This is a story out of the San Diego California area about the relationship between fraternities and campus assaults which are huge problem across the country.

“Sexual assaults involving fraternities is not a new problem. In fact, such assaults are high on the list of insurance claims against fraternities nationwide. But with the news media, lawmakers and the White House focusing on how universities handle these cases, some believe the culture and norms of campus Greek life will soon get even more scrutiny.”

Experts on the problem agree that the environment created by the Greek life one of competitive testosterone driven environment that is fueled by alcohol and casual sex is a key component in the sexual assault problem. So are the large-scale parties at fraternity houses, which can be ideal surroundings for predatory behavior.

It is just a fact that alcohol is predominant factor in close to 70% of all the cases of campus sexual assault. Victims often don’t report rapes at fraternity houses because of fear of retaliation from its members.

Burglary Ring Unraveling

This is a story about a Burglary Ring in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that police believe is responsible for more than 40 home burglaries involving more than half a million dollars-worth of jewelry and electronics in several cities and towns in the area.

Police were starting to notice a trend in the burglaries in terms of entry in a home and types of products taken. Like all burglaries, most the items taken are small valuable items that can be easily converted into cash at a local pawn shop.

Most of those items could have been protected by a can diversion safe such as this can of liquid wrench.

Diversion safes are not real safes in the true sense of the word. They protect your valuables by hiding them “in plain sight.” According to police statistics, most burglars spend less than ten minutes inside a home looking for items of value such as the items that were stolen in today’s article.

Burglars cannot look everywhere, so if you can hide them in a diversion safe chances of protecting them increase greatly. A diversion safe is a hollowed out canister of a common everyday product that people are used to seeing. Who would think to look inside a can of liquid wrench to find jewelry?

Home Burglary-Are You Going to Be The Next Victim?

Have you seen the statistics on home burglary? Many people consider them alarming, and we don’t mean that as a pun. Yes, security alarms are effective home security devices, but they are only one of many. Back to the statistics.

“The FBI tells us that a home burglary happens every 13 seconds in the United States and is the most common threat to your home.

Police also tell us that 90% of all burglaries can be prevented.

Burglars steal $2,119 worth of goods and another $2,000 worth of damage, on average, to every victimized home.

Police usually only clear 13% of all reported burglaries due to lack of witnesses or physical evidence.

Of all burglaries, 60.5 percent involved forcible entry, 33.2 percent were unlawful entries (without force), and the remainder 6.3 percent were forcible entry attempts (unsuccessful).”

Most home security devices provide simple, inexpensive and yet very effective home security. This Glass Breakage Burglar Alarm sounds a 100 db alarm siren when any window it is attached to is hit, cut or knocked out. It installs in seconds.

You should take some other steps to preclude the burglar from even thinking about breaking in. Those might include eliminating potential hiding places the burglars would use to conceal their whereabouts, installing some fake security cameras around the perimeter of your home and placing some signs in your front yard that warn of a vicious guard dog or of a home security system in place.

So the answer to the question “do you really need home security devices?” is yes absolutely, but only if you want to protect your home and the contents.

80% Of Burglaries Go Unsolved

Here is a story from the Fox television affiliate in Little Rock, Arkansas about Unsolved Burglary Cases in the city. So far this year that have been 2200 cases of burglary in Little Rock that have been reported. Many more go unreported. National statistics tell us that a home burglary happens every 13 seconds with a little over $2100 in stolen property on average in every case.

In this particular case one of the items that the burglars stole was a homeowner’s checkbook. They didn’t realize it was stolen until they started getting phone calls every couple of days from a different place with hot checks popping up all over the place. One bank even had a picture of the bad check writer on camera but the police did nothing. They were forced to do their own detective work.

Little Rock shows a 19.7% rate of solve cases of burglary which is actually above the national average. But that means that four out of every five cases goes unsolved.
