Who We Are
The National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) is the nationwide leader in shoplifting prevention efforts. NASP’s unparalleled shoplifter research and ongoing collaboration with community stakeholders – from crime prevention, to law enforcement, to retailers, to criminal & juvenile justice – has been the basis for all its organizational activities and the foundation for its programs and services.
NASP’s core programs, the Shoplifters Alternative Course (SA Course) for adults and the Youth Educational Shoplifting Program (Y.E.S. Program) for juveniles, continue to set the standard for research-based shoplifting prevention programs with the lowest reported recidivism rates.
NASP has been setting the standard for research-based shoplifter education programs with proven-effective, court documented results since 1977.
NASP is a private non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
