Other employees have warned about anti-theft technology at Walmart. Shutterstock It isn't clear if the procedure is standard among all stores or just at the location where Camacho previously worked. But according to another employee, there is technology in place that Walmart is using to keep an eye on stolen items. In a TikTok video posted on Oct. 20, 2021, employee Réjean Allen surveillance cameras above self-checkout kiosks will pick up any suspicious movements and alert staff."The slightest hand movement that looks like you're stealing, that camera catches it and it puts in on the screen," he says."And then it will replay your video back of when you're trying to steal something if you didn't scan it." Studies have shown that shoplifters feel self-checkout kiosks are an easy target. Shutterstock While some social media users called out Walmart for their tactics in the posted videos, research has shown that self-checkout kiosks have created a novel situation for an age-old practice. According to studies from the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP), surveys of small-time shoplifting offenders have found that many feel emboldened by the lack of staff watching their transactions take place, the CBC reports. "If I think nobody's watching me and nobody's seeing what I'm doing, I'm far more likely to misbehave," Barbara Staib , a NASP spokesperson, told the CBC."That's just human nature." Others pointed out that some shoppers justify the act by blaming the new technology."'Now I've got to bag my own stuff and I've got to check out myself … and it's a little bit of a hassle, so, guess what, I get to take one or two things for free,' that's the mentality," Bob Moraca , vice-president of loss prevention at National Retail Federation, told the CBC.
