Video Surveillance at Six Flags to Reveal Instigators and Victims After Fight Night


Crowds Turn Violent At Six Flags America Over The Weekend | #TpromoCom #Violence #SixFlagsAmerica | It was a chaotic weekend at Six Flags America in Prince George's County after several fights broke out in the parking lot (baltimore.cbslocal). https://bit.ly/2WoqsdU

"The Prince George’s County Police Department is working to identify those who were victimized by acts of vandalism that occurred this weekend at Six Flags Amusement Park. We are reviewing video and attempting to identify tag numbers and victims as well as potential suspects. Once we identify the suspects then the States Attorney’s Office can determine potential charges," says a Prince George County Police Department representative.

There are folks who do not believe that public video surveillance is a good thing for the citizens of their locale. Of course, there are those who believe it is. The situation described in this news story is definitely one that will get sorted out only by the use of on-site video surveillance. Without it, police would probably find it impossible to figure out who did what and to whom.

San Francisco may replace some law enforcement guards at hospitals with mental health teams
| #TpromoCom #Hospital #Security #Insanity | New proposal calls for hiring more psychiatric nurses and non-sworn staff to respond to crises (SecurityInfowatch) 

The number of sheriff's deputies who guard public hospitals and clinics in San Francisco would be dramatically reduced under a plan proposed Tuesday by San Francisco health officials who want to hire more psychiatric nurses and non-sworn staff to respond to crises.

The Department of Public Health presented a plan to the Health Commission at its Tuesday meeting to drop the number of deputies from 29 to about 18 at San Francisco General and replace around seven more at Laguna Honda Hospital and four community clinics.

The department would add around 30 psychiatric nurses and technicians... (read more)

Video Surveillance System Aids NYPD in Identifying Attacker

Man Arrested in Vicious Attack on Asian-American Woman
| #TpromoCom #Police #NYPD #Arrest | Witnesses who did nothing while older NYC woman was beaten have been suspended (newser) https://bit.ly/3rDESAu

To read the rest of this news story, click here.

A video surveillance system belonging to a business along 42nd street in Manhattan enabled the New York Police Department to identify the attacker of a 65-year-old woman who happen to be walking along the street, the details of which you can read for yourself in the news item summarized above. 

" A surveillance video that circulated earlier this week showed the Monday assault on the 65-year-old, who was walking along West 43rd Street in Manhattan when a man knocked her down, kicked her in the stomach, and yelled, "F--- you, you don't belong here" while stomping on her face multiple times before strolling away, per police," said Jenn Gidman,  Newser Staff in a story published today, March 31, 2021. 

Without public video systems along the street, the illegal activities of many criminals would go unchallenged and arrests would not be possible. Many of you who have followed my work in SDM, SSI, Locksmith Ledger, Electrical Contractor and other magazines know that I was once oppose to public cameras. Because of the murder of a young nurse in Boston and video captured by a nearby video surveillance system, I changed my stance on the issue altogether. 

There are bad actors walking the street--and now more than ever it appears--and it's absolutely necessary that we have a visual  record of what happened when events such as this take place. --Al Colombo

Fearful that Newell had a gun, the clerk opened two drawers and gave the defendant $63 currency, as well as a hidden tracking device that was stuck between two bills.

Checkout Skimmers Powered by Chip Cards


Checkout Skimmers Powered by Chip Cards
| #TpromoCom #Skimmers #CreditCard | Easily the most sophisticated skimming devices made for hacking terminals at retail self-checkout lanes are a new breed of PIN pad overlay combined with a flexible, paper-thin device that fits inside the terminal’s chip reader slot. http://bit.ly/3usAhUe

What enables these skimmers to be so slim? They draw their power from the low-voltage current that gets triggered when a chip-based card is inserted. As a result, they do not require external batteries, and can remain in operation indefinitely.

The overlay skimming device pictured above consists of two main components. The one on top is a regular PIN pad overlay designed to record keypresses when a customer enters their debit card PIN. The overlay includes a microcontroller and a small data storage unit (bottom left).

This is becoming more and more of a problem. To read the remainder of this great news story, click here!
