By: Darrin Giglio
Big Brother is watching, and more often thank one thinks these days. When CBS News covered the topic of hidden camera voyeurism earlier this year, the network turned to the surveillance experts at North American Investigations for their take on the controversial issue.
Earlier this year, when CBS News covered the topic of high-tech voyeurism, it turned to the surveillance expertise at North American Investigations, Inc. A team of private investigators in New York, North American Investigations maintains a private investigation surveillance division, which performs thousands of hours of field surveillance each year. With 40 years of experience under its belt, North American Investigation drew on its unsurpassed credentials to offer CBS News its expert opinion on hidden cameras and their personal invasion implications. Individuals who feel their privacy has been invaded by modern-day video recording devices can learn more about North American Investigations online at http://www.PvtEyes.com.
According to a December 2007 article published in “The Huffington Post,” “Public surveillance cameras now capture images of the average American more than 200 times per day. There are an estimated 30 million surveillance cameras in the U.S., generating more than four billion hours of video each week.” Many of these video recordings are legal, as “The Huffington Post” article points out: “Thirty-seven states allow security cameras in dressing rooms and bathrooms, often without disclosure.”
However, with video cameras readily available to the average American these days, a lot of illegal recording is going on too. Big Brother is watching was the topic of a recent CBS News article titled “Hidden Camera Detectors Take On High-Tech Voyeurs.” Therein, the topic of “someone watching and taping your most private parts” was put under scrutiny.

“The tiny technology of today [e.g., cell phones and cameras hidden inside everyday objects like eyeglass cases] makes it nearly impossible to detect,” Giglio warns. “If you think you’re being watched, you probably are, so know your rights.” In the state of New York, “surveillance is considered unlawful when a person is using video for amusement, entertainment or profit.”
