Target adds cameras at self-checkout stations to deter theft

Target Corp. is taking a new tack to combat theft at self-checkout stations.

The retailer is adding a new technology at its self-checkout registers that uses cameras to detect items on scanners, alerting shoppers who leave anything unscanned, according to internal documents viewed by Bloomberg News.

The technology, called TruScan, is being rolled out to all stores this year, the documents said. It could help Target track shoppers "who repeatedly fail to scan their items even after being prompted," according to the documents.
