Residential Security Camera Laws

Someone recording your audio without your consent is illegal. As well as, for security purposes, the video will suffice. You do not need audio.

Cameras Pointed Off Your Property

Although it is not an issue to have a surveillance video camera facing your neighbor’s property, but in some cases, your neighbor not be comfortable; hence it best not to have the surveillance camera even face their yards. Since the laws are different in every state, we suggest you check it with your state department before installing any surveillance video cameras. In some states, you can have the surveillance video camera to face your property. It is always legal if the surveillance video camera takes a picture of someone in a public area, so you angle the camera on to the sidewalks and roads.

If your neighbor has placed a camera that violates your privacy, you should first talk to your neighbor. You can ask them to remove the camera or change its position. If these fail, you can block the cameras by planting in front of it. If they still do not listen and support you, you can contact the local police. They will help you solve the problem.

Fundraisers

Fundraisers don’t seem like a security risk. However, they are. This is due to the high traffic during an event. A lot of people go to fundraisers.

Risks

Property damage can be caused when security isn’t present. A fundraiser can provide fun. It can also provide a distraction. Therefore, items can be damaged or stolen. Theft of funds earned during a fundraiser is the most common risk. However, another risk is assault. People are close together and able to harm others without security.

Security Options

An armed officer is a great security measure. This option provides an officer with a weapon. Therefore, they protect everyone and everything. Both armed and unarmed officers are great for guarding exits. If something happens, they can prevent them from escaping. Cameras will help to provide evidence. If someone steals or damages an item, there is proof. Overnight security is great for a building that the fundraiser is in. Especially for ongoing fundraisers over several days. Contract security is a great option for long fundraisers. Political campaigns are a good example. They are usually ongoing for a year or more. This may require constant security. Contract security can provide that.

What is your best option?
