Target employee reveals they know when people steal from their stores

APPARENTLY, it's a lot easier to be caught red-handed at TARGET than you may think.

The Minnesota-based retailer takes its safety very seriously and has two entire forensics labs it uses to catch shoplifters and help stop crime.

According to an article shared by Target's corporate website, the brand has top-tier forensics labs that work with police stations across the states to help keep communities safer.

The labs are even accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors – an impressive feat considering there are only 300 in total across the world with the marking.

"Most people don’t know what we do," lab director Rick Lautenbach told the site.

"We’re a small team with a specialized skill set.

"People usually find out by word-of-mouth about all the cool things we’re able to do."

Lautenbach oversees the proceedings of Target's facilities in Minneapolis and in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The scientists at his labs have a range of responsibilities, such as examining and organizing evidence, which includes audio files, video footage, and fingerprints.

Additionally, Target's labs have been used to assist in special homicide and felony cases when outside law enforcement needs extra hands and facilities.

Impressively,they do it completely free of charge.

"We’re lucky we get a chance to give back to communities in a meaningful way by helping officers," Lautenbach proudly noted.

Target certainly seems to rank supreme in security and forensics investigation, but that doesn't mean other large corporations don't take theft and general safety seriously, either.

For instance, a Walmart employee claimed workers can pause self-checkout machines when they suspect someone is trying to steal.
