    Hidden cameras reveal airport workers stealing from luggage

    Hidden cameras show airport workers stealing from bags - CNN.com


    Miami (CNN)—Inside a plane at Miami International Airport, baggage handlers are going on a shopping spree with passengers' bags.

    What they don't know is that they are being recorded on a hidden camera. The Miami-Dade Police Department set up the camera as part of an ongoing police investigation into luggage thefts by the very airport workers who are supposed to get bags safely onto planes.
    "It's a problem we all face," said police Lt. Pete Estis. "We will continue to be proactive until we can see that the claims of pilfering through luggage will actually decrease."
    Wow, the airlines are not only charging you to check in your luggage, they are lightening them up for you. Now we'll need Air Marshalls among baggage handlers. I bet these turds belong to a union too.

    This has been happening since forever and has been well known. The airlines aren't interested in fixing this problem.

    No, they can be used for a wide variety of things. They may fire a few folk, but I doubt it will go much beyond that.

    Did you not read the OP?

    The Miami-Dade Police Department set up the camera as part of an ongoing police investigation into luggage thefts by the very airport workers who are supposed to get bags safely onto planes.

    I work for the airlines, it is not possible to stop.

    as long as people have bags which can be opened these things are going to happen......i have worked the terminal gates for many years, as an aircraft tech.

    Yes, the police department did. I said the airlines aren't too interested in fixing the problem. Did you not read my post. I don't think this needs to be stated, but just in case, the police and the airlines are two different entities.

    The police would not have been able to set the cameras and keep them hidden without the cooperation of the airlines and the airport.

    But the police said they put up the cameras to stop the thieves.

    Yes, I'm sure they would cooperate with authorities, and I think that's about as far as it's going to go aside from some firings. But policy changes? Actual efforts to curtail? I doubt it.
