Valley Forge Casino Resort in Pennsylvania will install the cameras due to an increase in children being left in parking lots while parents are playing at the casino.
US.- Valley Forge Casino Resort in Pennsylvania has taken action following an increased number of minors being left unattended in cars while adults play in the casino. The venue will install infrared cameras to spot minors who have been left in cars in the parking lot. Guards patrolling the area will aim to detect unsupervised children left inside vehicles.
Boyd Gaming, Valley Forge Casino Resort’s parent company, said it will spend $776,000 on prevention and educating campaigns about leaving unsupervised minors.
The company will show warning signs explicitly prohibiting the behaviour. Philadelphia Inquirer reported that since January Valley Forge had seen 22 children in cars parked while adults were playing in casinos. In the past three years, there have been 15 similar cases.
