Shopping malls are encouraging shoppers to use social media to spy on citizens
From: BlacklistedNews

Strategies often employed by law enforcement agencies to prevent attacks — like metal detectors, armed guards and bag screenings — may discourage consumers from heading to the mall, during a period when malls are losing shoppers (nearly a 7 percent drop from last year at this time, according to ShopperTrak), largely to online retailers.

So mall operators are increasingly turning to subtler, less visible measures to keep a watchful eye on the activities of shoppers.



“There is that careful balance between making people feel safe and the infringement on civil liberties,” said Matthew W. Horace, chief security officer of FJC Security Services, a private security firm. “Would they rather feel safe? Or do they want to see armed guards with machine guns and berets? That’s the balance that we all face with safety.”

Mall operators now offer emergency evacuation training sessions for staff members. They have also added to security staffs; installed shatterproof windows and bomb-resistant trash cans; and expanded closed-circuit television security systems. Malls increasingly invite local emergency response teams to speak to their staffs and to use the facilities after hours for practice drills. Some are turning to the very shoppers they hope to protect, encouraging them to report suspicious activity on social media outlets like Twitter.

Spying on Americans has reached malls & movie theaters, how long before it reaches supermarkets and our homes?

Freehold Township has used a $285,000 grant from the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness to install license plate readers on the mall’s entrance roads in order to enhance security at the regional shopping destination. (Click here to see the video)

The Township Committee authorized the acceptance of the grant in 2010 and officials said the funds would provide for continued safety and security in the township in conjunction with the mall.

The license plate readers are attached to a metal arm that hangs over the mall’s entrance roads. There are entrances from Route 9, Route 537 and Business Route 33.

According to a 2010 article regarding the grant, when a vehicle passes a license plate reader, its license plate will automatically be scanned by the machine and sent to a central computer.

A “hit” on certain license plates could elicit a response from law enforcement authorities.
