Its obvious that security cameras in the United States are on the rise. People and owners of establishments want extra protection and safety. And for most Americans the idea of security cameras is not an issue to them. However, there are places where security cameras cannot be placed and establishments are prohibited to placing the security cameras in these areas.
Public restrooms for one, no matter where it may be, a convenient store to a large sports stadium, they cannot be placed in the restrooms. The security camera can be outside the entrance, but no where in public restrooms. The security cameras cannot even be placed in rest area restrooms along the highways and interstates. Schools cannot place them in restrooms either, though I am sure some would like too. People have a right to privacy, and even security camera owners cannot cross that line no matter what. That is, unless they want a hefty law suit on their hands, or other criminal charges brought up against them. Either way where ever the security cameras are prohibited well then security cameras should not be found don’t you agree?
Another place that security cameras are not allowed is in locker rooms such as in gyms, schools and once again sports stadiums. Security cameras invade personal privacy if they are placed in these areas. This of course, is a punishable offense if it is found that security cameras are in fact located in these areas of certain establishments.
Security cameras are not supposed to be placed in hotel rooms or rental property either. One place in particular that security cameras are not allowed is in department store or clothing store dressing rooms. This is definitely a violation of privacy. And, as an extra precaution store owners who have security cameras all over the store especially the bigger stores have now started putting devices on clothing specially designed to prevent theft of the clothing. I’m sure this is due to the fact that they are not allowed to place security cameras in the dressing rooms. By using the devices they hopefully keep clothing thefts down. Without being able to place security cameras in the dressing rooms. Laws are laws and the store owners must go by them. There are not many places that do not comply with the laws of where security cameras can be placed.
Before the use of these clothing devices were placed on the clothes, it was much easier for the theft of clothing by simply going into the dressing rooms and putting the new clothing on under the other clothing, taken into consideration that security cameras are not allowed in dressing rooms and people knew this. Now things are different, and store owners are seeing a difference as well.
Extra measures have been taken in the clothing departments in almost every store that sells clothing. You can’t blame these people for doing this. Considering that security cameras are not allowed in certain places, helps those who need to keep track of their inventory come up with other means of watching over their products.
