Security cameras, anyone who reads this site knows, have been immensely helpful in tracking the movements of people out to rip off the unsuspecting in the 24-680.
Cameras are becoming more common, both for home protection as well as for use by local law enforcement, and despite some expressed concerns their arrival has received a warm welcome.
Questions have persisted, however. Who is being monitored? What can a homeowner legally set their cameras to capture? Who monitors the data file? And could this information conceivably be used against us?
Those questions are being asked in light of a recent case to come to the attention of police in Moraga, who responded to an address in the 100 block of Ascot Drive on June 22 after receiving a complaint that an in-use camera may be capturing more than images of its owner’s property line.
Police said they contacted the parties involved and that their findings were forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for review. Beyond that, they’re not saying.
