    Howdy folks, I'll soon be starting my SIA (Security Industry Authority) Training in Security Guarding and CCTV Operations.

    I know you're in America and all that but I am sure we all use the same methods and roughly the same systems to catch those naughty little tea leafs.

    I was hoping some of you could input some advice for watching people and just other general CCTV suggestions.

    At Comet I was not allowed to use the Camera system because I was not SIA trained to do so nor was I a long term member of management so any input you can give would be great. I'll be taking an SIA exam also so I would really like to learn what I can from experienced officers.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    That's pretty broad. Watching people in what circumstance? CCTV - what application? You have asked two very broad based questions.

        Please don't use the PTZs to folow attractive young women. If you do, please don't save the video. If you do, please don't put it on YouTube.

        "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

            Funny.... One of my new Loss Prevention Agents was talking over in our store's camera room today (which is next door to my office) and I overheard it. He was saying something about printing off a picture of this "hot chick". So I go next door to make sure they aren't using the CCTV system for personal pleasure and I was shocked. The "hot chick" he was watching was my wife who was in the store to surprise me with lunch

            Talk about being flattered and defensive at the same time

            Every day is a new experience, thats for sure.
