    There are cameras everywhere, vitually from every angle. And it is recorded, so it can be pulled and re-viewed. When Casey Anthony wrote the bad checks at Target they pulled the footage months later of her in every isle and then at the cash register and were able to zoom in on the check, etc. Her whole shopping experience was saved on tape for months and she was not even suspected of anything at the time. Makes you wonder….

    I work security at one of Target’s High-Risk stores. Our system is completely digital (some lower risk stores still have CCTV, from what I understand, which is still completely on VHS) so we can view any camera on our computer system. At my store, we have two offices, one having two computers, the other having one. Each computer has two monitors, so we can have many cameras pulled up at once. I have no idea what you mean by “take for the screen to switch”…switch what? And beyond have cameras everywhere, we can control several of them with the mouse. These are called PTZ’s (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) and they allow us to follow someone’s every movement, and zoom in on them so we can see what they are carrying and anything that may be in their cart. And because everything is digital, we have archives that allow us to search for the last 30 days. We can also search for transactions several different ways. This even includes searching by the name on your credit card and finding every transaction you’ve done in the last 90 days. We can search by the amount, the date, time, and register of any transaction. We can also plug in an item number and find every transaction where that item was scanned–even just for a price check.
