Hey
In the toilets in my school we saw tiles with small holes in the centre of them so we decided to break one of them open. We found a small camera inside..... There's 8 of them spread across the toilets.

Just wondering if this is illegal because we're having a meeting with the principal about it tmrw

um..yes. its an invasion of privacy. unless it is outside of the bathroom or possibly looking at the sinks or something. then they might be able to get away with it.

Lol...

It's worldwide media scandal illegal.

Does your principal know about this meeting and if so are the cameras his?

Were the cameras in the toilets themselves, or just in the bathrooms? I don't know about the legality of the whole issue, but I would think it's more likely to be illegal if they're in the toilets or in a place where they can easily see what's going on at the toilet.

they are placed in a few places in the bathrooms....

Some of them are pointing at the urinals....so they can see someones back while they urinate.....

The principal knows about this meeting......

If it was legal then the camera's wouldn't have been hidden!!

So can he charge us for ripping 1 of the cameras out?
#10
In the cubicles, or just in the actual room we all call the toilets....?

But then again, I wouldn't know.
Just be careful they don't try to do you in for vandalism (which they might if it is infact legal)

Its legal so long as they arent in the stalls or overlooking the urinals.

Not necessarily...


We have cameras in our toilets at school. Not in the actual cubicles, but just outside so that you can see if people are skiving, or smoking or whatever.

I would still say illegal because it's in the bathroom. I don't know, law's may differ in Ireland. I'm in the US and I know you can't do that stuff at least where I live.

I don't think so headly.

But don't be surprised if you get done in for vandalism, and you can't even say it wasn't you they've got you on camera now!


edit: what is everyones problem with a camera in the toilets? if they can't see any part of you then whats the problem? Newsflash! When you're in a public area, people can see you!

the camera's aren't actually viewing the "**** area".

But they can see our backs...

still illegal??


If that's the case, I wouldn't think it would be, but that's just a guess.

I did some research and most places say it's either fully illegal but some UK news sites have reported it being used in schools.

Problem is that they under no circumstances can face the urinals or be in the cubicles. If that is true then they are in deep crap.

Intrusion of privacy might have something to do with it...

It's illegal in Ireland. I remember our old Principal telling us about it when we had them installed about 3 years ago.
They can't be placed in bathrooms, also, weirdly enough you can't put them in classrooms either, just hallways.

Even if there are cameras not in the toilets, don't you have to be made aware of them with signs and stuff? I dont really know, but i would say that doesn't sound like a good thing at all :/

Woah..news to me!

We have *clearly signposted* cameras in our toilets at school. The other day though i noticed the same dodgy-looking cameras in the CHANGING ROOMS. Pedophile p.e teachers or what?!!???!

make sure next time you use the bathroom, make your dump/piss as raunchy as possible for the camera.

but seriously that's weird, who's gonna monitor those things?
