TRENTON, N.J. – The state’s Safe Care Cam program will make micro-surveillance cameras available for loan to anyone who suspects their loved one is being abused or neglected by home health aides or other in-home caregivers. “Cameras don’t lie, and the abuses they’ve revealed are shocking,” said New Jersey Attorney General Christopher Porrino in a statement. “A quality micro-surveillance camera is expensive and many people simply can’t afford them. That’s why we’re offering the use of these cameras free of charge to those who wish to confirm that their loved ones are safe and well-cared-for in their absence.” Once the cameras are in place, it will be up to participants to review the recorded footage, which can be played on a television or computer with adapters provided by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. “Our Safe Care Cam program will empower consumers to become their loved-ones’ front-line protectors against abuse and neglect,” said Steve Lee, director of the DCA.
