It seems that child abuse is more prevalent in the media these days. This is large in part to child caregivers being convicted of such offences. Sadly crimes like these plague America, and it’s difficult to trust anyone. You may not realize it but people are constantly in and out of your home, whether it is your nanny, housecleaner, or exterminator, or even your family.
In Staten Island, New York, Mamura Nasirova, a 52-year-old Nanny cared for a 5-month old infant and older sibling. That is until the nanny cam –a secret surveillance camera, hidden in the home for parents to see what happens –caught the caregiver roughly picking up the baby and slapping its face. The parents had hidden their surveillance camera in a carbon monoxide detector. Ms. Nasirova was fired immediately after parents saw the footage, and was reported to the police upon them hearing she was looking for another job the following day. NBC 4 New York reported the story.
A family in New Jersey found out first hand another great use for their nanny cam, USA Todayreports. After a home invasion in Newark, New Jersey, where a mother was attacked and beaten, police were able to capture the man thanks to the family’s nanny cam. The nanny cam captured the hard to stomach footage, showing a man plowing through the door of a home, and violently attacking a woman, while her 3-year-old daughter watched, trembling in a ball on the couch.
More saddening is this next testimonial. In Orange County a father was convicted of attempted murder. The mother of the infant had set up surveillance a few years earlier for her own peace of mind, but what she found was much more grimacing than she expected. Joshua Allen Robey, the father of a two-month-old, had swung his infant child around with a noose like object tied around the baby’s neck. The surveillance footage had also captured him shaking the baby, and much worse.
You don’t have to live in fear that this is going to happen to you. Having video surveillance can help protect you and your family. Los Angeles Security Cameras can provide peace of mind with their selection of nanny cams. By installing hidden surveillance, you can go to work with ease knowing you aren’t going to miss a thing. The mother from the story in Staten Island had a sickening feeling that something was not right at home. Instead of rushing home on a whim of instinct, she watched the video from a remote feed before rushing home.
Surveillance devices can also be disguised in the form of simple, mundane, household objects such as fire alarm or carbon monoxide detector, like the Staten Island family mentioned above. Other products include teddy bears, alarm clocks, and more. You can prevent becoming one of the testimonials above, and stop injustice the moment you see it happen. Better yet? You can sleep easy at night, with the knowledge you are protecting your family.
