Shoplifting has become a significant target of concern, pun intended, for the big box store Target in Louisiana and across the country.

TruScan uses thermal technology to detect and identify items. These cameras are different from those you are used to seeing at self-checkout, which simply capture a video of your face to deter people from stealing.

The TruScan technology can detect items being scanned and items that are missed. When a customer fails to scan an item properly or skips it altogether, they will be alerted with visual and audio cues to give them a chance to remedy their error.
