The Target Corporation Runs A State-of-the-Art Lab Devoted To What?
Answer: Video Forensics
Buried within Target’s corporate campus in Minnesota, is a certified crime lab specializing in forensic video analysis. Target uses the facility to analyze their own security footage and implement new security features, but they also donate significant amounts of time to analyzing crime scene footage.
Police departments around the country find it useful to call on Target’s sophisticated video lab because the forensic specialists there have a working knowledge of a wide variety of surveillance systems and can quickly analyze and extract information from systems a small police department may be unequipped or unstaffed to handle.
The Target lab is one of only twenty-seven private forensic facilities certified by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors.
