A spokesperson for the Massachusetts state court system recently told The Associated Press that security measures are being upgraded and changed at the Lowell Superior Court.
It doesn't sound like a big deal until you read the statement that preceded it.
"The courthouse does have video surveillance, but nobody monitors the cameras over the weekend and recordings are not made."
Indeed, officials at the Lowell Superior Court have no idea who entered an unlocked building during the weekend of April 10 and stole two 43-inch flat screen televisions that are used by prosecutors and defense attorneys to show visual evidence to jurors.
Needless to say, it was probably a rough Monday for the Court's security manager.
For the sake of your job as a security executive, please don't put yourself in a position to have to make the statement above. Keep those cameras rolling...and recording!
