Fedex spy trucks
« on: June 30, 2024, 12:54:37 PM »
According to this Fedex is now through a surveillance company allowing police access to it's truck mounted cameras

Quote
The popular postal firm has partnered with a $4billion surveillance startup based in Georgia called Flock Safety, Forbes reported.

Flock specializes in automated license plate recognition and video surveillance, and already has a fleet of around 40,000 cameras spanning 4,000 cities across 40 states.

FedEx has teamed up with the company to monitor its facilities across the US, but under the deal it is also sharing its Flock surveillance feeds with law enforcement. And it is believed to be one of four multi-billion dollar private companies with this arrangement.

So next time you see a Fedex truck smile, you're on Candid Big Brother camera
And it turns out they're not the only ones.

Georgia is sucking hard on the statism dick because they are also installing the Flock cameras everywhere

Most military bases allow FedEx/UPS unfettered access once the drivers have been vetted. Mine uses a "consolidated receiving point" but otherwise the trucks are not monitored while on base. In other words, a "wrong turn" by a vetted driver would probably go unnoticed, including some clear lines of sight to the flightline (although the flightline itself is a controlled area).

I was looking at the article.  They say specifically that company will get access to the facility cameras owned by Fedex.  They don't say they will get access to the truck cameras, but the rest of the article appears to assume that.  Is everyone assume something that isn't there or is that fact just left out?

You can go back several years and see where FedEx has been putting cameras into their trucks. It was only a matter of time until we found out this is going on. As much as I would like to say it surprises me, it doesn't.
