Casino Surveillance Pro Interview: James Lathrop

By: Dan Gelinas, Published on Feb 15, 2019

James Lathrop [link no longer available] has been working in casinos for almost 25 years. During that time, he says he has held "just about every job you can do in the casino," including Surveillance Technician, Surveillance Observer, Surveillance Manager,  Security Shift Manager, and Casino Shift Manager (he's currently Shift Manager at Hobey's outside Reno) throughout various casinos in Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. He has seen a lot of change. One thing that has remained consistent, however, is the need for good security and surveillance to create an audit trail and to protect against loss from theft and cheating.

In this note, we interview Lathrop on his experiences working security and surveillance in the high-stakes world of casinos and cover the following topics:

  • Lathrop background
  • Early Pivot3 fail
  • Catching the casino bad guys (Operations)
  • Technological influencers
  • Facial recognition on the rise
  • Prevalent brands in casinos
  • Finding the right security partners
  • Integration: The Holy Grail
