For security and safety purposes, establishments install spy cameras in all controversial areas of the premises. Security-because companies protect their businesses and premises either from outside or inside threats. Safety-because companies try to avoid accident threats, even theft within the workplace. Actually almost all establishments today have them. A device like this has the same advantage as using GPS Tracking systems of some sort.
The store I am in right now has cameras in all areas of the store. All those who are working on cash registers are on cameras all the time, even I. Tracking cameras are positioned where the in-charge can see the person who works on the registry. We employees should not take it as an offensive thing. It is a part of assets protection. As long as we do our job with honesty and dignity, there will be no trouble.
Speaking of tracking, have you experienced being tracked? It is a trend right now to have GPS tracking on vehicles to find out where a person’s current location. Same with spy cameras, it is helpful in tracking a loved one or a friend. I know it is quite odd but for safety concerns, using GPS tracking is beneficial.
