Help me catch THIEVES that are in this VIDEO

At my work we found that cameras marked as dual voltage, (12VCD/24VAC) especially IR, work much better on the higher voltage.

I spent a few hours looking at ZoneMinder. I do not want to badmouth it, but it is a PHP project and I loath PHP. It always spells trouble with bad security practices.
Right now, I jave changed how I record videos.
Instead of pulling them down from on-camera SD cards, I download them as live streams using ffmpeg. I split them into approximately 50 megabyte files. It seems to work very smoothly. My old desktop is a bit too slow when five streams from five cameras are downloaded, and I will upgrade it to a faster CPU.
Additionally, I save snapshots from cameras as JPEGs every second.
It seems to be an industrial grade solution. A 3TB disk will hold plenty of recordings.

So, you're saying that workers have an expectation of privacy while on the job? That's just plain silly and settled law...NO PRIVACY, except in john stalls.

Looks a lot like a Toyota Sequoia 08-09
We may have a winner. Same angled quarter panel glass divider and tail lights look possible. see

Does it look to anyone else this vehicle may have a roof rack?

Yes, horizontal light spread, lower running/backup lamps.
Indeed it does. I think you have a winner, Unka G. That should limit it down for the Village police.

Yeah, I've been wondering about that. You give them the make, model, year, color and what are they gonna' do? For a bunch of scrap and a battery that's long gone and untraceable?

I have a 3TB hard drive where I save all videos. I can also access video feeds from home or my cell phone at any time.

Right, like an Intel Core i5 or AMD Phenom II X4 processor. And tell the installer what you'd like to do from there.

Remember when I installed cameras throughout the shop and the union had a fit but didn't have a leg to stand on, at least under Ohio Law. The libs here had a fit about my invading my employees' privacy. So I wasn't surprised when the libs tried that old chestnut again. If it were up to the libs everybody would work for the government and there would be no crime...because nothing would be illegal. UTOPIA!

BOLO for that vehicle at other locals would be good for the local cops. Sooner or later..they are going to be found someplace suspicious and get pulled over and FI'd (field investigation) and they will be caught dirty (with stolen goods onboard)
Police work is generally putting little pieces together and a good deal of pure dumb luck.

At the risk of sounding crass, atleast it was DIY cheap and not professional cheap. This way you aren't blaming a professional installer because the system you didn't spend much on didn't do much. There is no reason that DIY can't be good though. Personally I like NVR and DVR tied cameras. NVRs eliminate some of the issues you have had with cheap IP cameras because they carry the work load, and DVRs work with anaolg cameras. And of course hybrid recorders allow you to use analog and IP cameras in a mixed application to take advantage of economy analog and high res IP as is appropriate to each individual camera application location.
As to price... Look at Digital Wathdog's Starlight dome cameras. They have some neat features for a mid to high price analog camera. Things like headlight masking, modest IR range, and modest Starlight capability.
Most folks (even those that think they do) don't spend enough on their video surveillance to do much in a real situation. They try to cover too much with one camera. They believe the bullshit hype that manufacturers put on the box. They think you can do an NCIS style enhancement on crappy video not realizing that if the data isn't there the data just isn't there.
