SO long time no talk. Some of them are. Now that all stores are linked to corporate AP, all stores video feeds can be viewed remotely by Target corporate AP during after hours. I'm told they have access to any camera view they want at the click of a mouse. There's about 150 people at corp ap plus eash stores ap (3-6) depending on location that have access to the cameras at any given notice. Its a crap shoot to know what cameras at what store are being monitored by corporate. Not worth it IMO.

you of all people should know that Target AP doesn't screw around. I would know. I used to be one of them. We would go after former employees all the time. We get the schedules of peoples' who last day it is (if you put in a notice) and would pay extra attention to them. Remember the cameras are always recording. The ones you can see and the ones you can't see. We would have covert cameras in electronics and electronics stockrooms all the time. AP also does cycle counts and audits on specific items and random items. If something come up short compared to sales receipts, its straight to the video. Target AP lives for internals. Just search this forum. The vast majority say stay away from Target.

Felony felony felony. Your asking for a lot of felonies IMO. A lot of states have a statewide mas notification system to notify retailer LP, regardless of company, of multiple thefts by the same suspect. Alerts usually go out within an hour or two if multiple stores are hit quickly. You may get away with 3-5, but over a dozen is really pushing it (former LP here).

Good luck. HD and lowes have gone back to hands on as of Jan 2022. Sounds like they finally got fed up with the thefts and gone back to their old LP ways. I don't blame them considering the huge losses they took in 2018-2021. Former LP here.

Now imagine yourself as a loss prevention employee and not some regular store level employee. Someone who is trained to watch for concealment, no matter what it gets concealed into. Trust me, if someone were to walk in with a pizza box, I'm gonna watch them as that is something that doesn't normally happen.

LOL. the 5 steps isnt a law. Its a "guideline". As former LP I can't tell you how many times I caught people on just 4 steps. If lifters are willing to break the rules, so is LP. It's just an unfortunate fact of the game.

They do this from time to time depending on the dollar amount and what agreement the seller has with amazon. Usually low dollar stuff.

If you used your card, most likely they may and try to case build against you. That's at least what I used to do and what my bosses had me do in these situations. They can put your card number into the surveillance system and instantly see every transaction and associated video that with with it.

Former alarm tech here. This is so much wrong with this.

  1. Telephone lines are rarely used now for security monitoring. Fire alarm, yes...security no. Most of these are cellular and internet
  2. Communicator Supervision - Most professionally installed system supervise the alarm communicator (device that transmits signals). If this device is tampered with, alarm will sound.
  3. Additional supervision - Most systems have Frequency Jamming supervision. Very common on Honeywell, DSC, Interlogix, DMP and Qolsys systems. If the system detects the frequency is being jammed, it will try to send a signal to the central alarm station, but even if it doesn't reach it, if the system is armed, it will go into alarm and make noise to let everyone within earshot that something is up.
  4. Clearly this is a thinly veilled attempt to bu these "Jammers" Which probably don't even work, and the site selling them was created in 2020 and very sketch.

Probably not a good idea IMO. Most schools, if not all have some sort of camera system and all have alarm systems which are monitored remotely. Most schools use Bosch alarm systems (ive installed several in schools and government buildings over the years). These usually only have a keypad that will beep when the alarm is triggered, so unless you're near it, you probably wont hear it and cops could already be on their way.

Most security systems have a battery backup. They also report when power is lost and when the battery is running low, so people will know that power has been cut and will send someone to restore it, usually before the battery backup runs out. I know this because ive installed and works on these systems. They are hard to beat.
