New from Sperry West is a small suitcase with a hidden camera that operates on internal batteries. Already in use, this unit has been catching thieves in various locations including hotels. Inside the SW3040DW is a miniature video camera and a digital wireless transmission system. The case “sees” through a tiny hole and sends the signal to its dedicated receiver. The security team can then choose to record the video on their own DVR &/or simply add a monitor and view the activity. Also available is the SW3040DVR, which, instead of transmitting the signal, actually records all motion internally.
When you need to catch persistent crime and the suspect is very familiar with the area, you may not be able to have anything new that may attract the subjects attention. The solution could be the Sperry West Spyder Pinhole kit, SW2370KITC. This camera is most often placed above a dropped ceiling, with just a very small hole needed in the ceiling.
There are many factors whether you should prosecute an employee after you have caught them red-handed. Although sometimes the decision is not yours, but simply a matter of your organizations policy or your legal teams decision. When that decision is yours to make or yours to convince others, there are many factors to consider. The time involved for you and your team can be very costly, as preparing for trial, the trial itself, and perhaps fighting or preparing an appeal can appear to outweigh the value of prosecution. You must consider what else is on your agenda to establish whether you can afford your time, or others’ time in your organization.
