Tips from a Private Investigator: staying safe while holiday shopping

Excerpt: "The more people that come out here, the more I see people putting themselves at risk," said Private Investigator Steven Watson. . . Watson says, one thing that just about everyone does; talking on your cell phone while walking to your car, can make you unaware of your surroundings, a perfect time for someone to attack."

What are some of the surveillance cameras being used out there to conduct surveillance?

Excerpt: "The depth of view and angle of view are dependent factors. If you are looking for depth you lose width and conversely if you go for a wider view you lose depth. The system I got was more than adequate for depth and I could bring it back for additional width, but unable to bring it back to a width the client wanted. And part of the problem was a changing attitude of the client. The quality of the images was exceptional for our needs."
