This sounds surprisingly like my city, one is a hospital that used to be local, and was taken over by a chain hospital, the other is local but BIG. There are small independent practices here though, but 90% is the two big ones

Definitely a good one, one that the 2d barcode scans correctly and has the holograms. I don't know of any fake ID being able to pass being ran by the cops, but you might get it by private security. I'd agree that most people who work security/sell alcohol or cigs, etc will know how to spot a fake if it's not good.

On a privacy note, I'll never let anyone scan my ID in a store, this is just too easy to get your info and abuse it. I've actually made a barcode that will crash a store's system, but that's another story

Would a good tip be not taking an ID with you when you go "shopping"? I don't know what they would do if you refused to give one, or flat out didn't have one. Then you could give BS info. I never even let stores take pics of my ID or scan it even for legit things.

That's the concept tag, mainly used in Europe, from what I've heard. It doesn't use a magnet, but takes an odd key, it basically pushes pins into those holes to remove it. There's a guy online that sells overpriced homemade detachers. You could make one with some stiff wires, and 2 part modeling epoxy for a couple bucks, which is the same design being sold for 10 times that much. You need a way to grip the tag body, and then a way to push the pins into the holes simultaneously.

This is Target though, they have a damn crime lab as well! I don't see much getting by The Bullseye. As far as generators being seen, google earth will get you good details of a roof, and if the genny is in a building, it will still have large exhaust pipes exiting somewhere.

I know the Sensormatic EAS towers generally do not have back ups in a lot of stores. (Target uses Checkpoint towers) The wallys by me have no generators, and this is almost a given for smaller regional chain stores.

I could see a lot of big retailers having a good deal of the cams on a backup, not only for theft, but insurance/liability. I'd treat the cams as if they were on regardless.

I worked at a charity thrift store, we had cameras, but would only trespass someone if we saw them stealing. Wasn't worth trying to stop someone. I'd avoid ones that were local charities, but the big chain stores are fair game. Salvation Army exploits the homeless, so stick it to em. A local chain overprices their stuff, and failed to delete personal info off of computers they sold, I'd like to see someone clean them out, they also throw away lots of stuff, and crush it so no one can dumpster dive it.

The newer ones don't have screws holding them together, the tag is imbedded inside. You'd need to cut the plastic open to get it out. (I believe there are vids of it) The cable is just a steel cable, would be hard to cut, but the knipex pliers in another reply would work. Toss the key through the fence in the garden center, or set it where you can get it from outside the fence, bypass the security towers.

As far as lockpicking, the cases usually use really easy to pick locks, except for the ones that use tubular locks. (the ones that have a "Q" shaped keyhole) Just remember, getting caught stealing with lockpicks would likely be posession of burglary tools, meaning it would go from theft to burglary.

This. Unless they have evidence of you stealing (5 steps) they can't detain you. If they did, and you were found to have paid for everything/had nothing, they could be sued for false imprisonment or detention.

It's definitely security theatre

I had my stack up to 3 inches, it still didn't equal a golf detacher though, but it would remove most of the square black/gray magnetic tags.

Some advice: this should work on basic magnetic tags, I've used a similar setup.
