An IP camera security system can help deter unwanted criminal activity such as property damage, trespassing, and theft. Trained security operators watch several locations of a retail property simultaneously via strategically-placed outdoor surveillance cameras. They can stay on the phone with officers and provide information about the suspect’s description and location.
Watch the Video: Naked Trespasser Arrested – Live Shopping Center Security
Just before 4:00 a.m., a trespasser stripped outside of a Dallas, Texas shopping center and laid down. An IP camera security system operator activated the on-site speaker warning, but the trespasser remained on the property. The trained operator called the Dallas Police. A few minutes later, the naked suspect walked away from the outdoor surveillance camera view.
Before the individual left the shopping center, the Dallas Police arrived. The responding officer spoke with the naked trespasser and placed him under arrest.
A Shopping Center Crime Magnet
Of course, public nudity is a lesser offense when compared to more severe crimes like drug deals, assault and theft. In a span of two years, one Dallas shopping center experienced 66 drug-related arrests, two robberies, and seven aggravated assaults. The City of Dallas acquired a court injunction against the center because the property manager did not do enough to stop crime and violence. According to a Dallas Police Major, the shopping center owner is responsible for ensuring the safety of his patrons and tenants.
The shopping center has been called a crime enabler and a magnet for murder, drug dealings, and gang violence. Criminal activity has gotten so bad that Dallas Area Rapid Transit closed a bus stop at the retail center because of the ongoing violence and shootings.
Since the CBS article was published, the retail center owner has hired an armed security guard company to monitor the parking lot.
