In 1989, NASP was the first of its kind to pioneer the use of research-based and “offense-specific” education programs for shoplifting offenders. Since then NASP has earned a reputation for consistent, effective, high quality programs and services with a serious commitment to customer satisfaction. NASP’s universal perspective and practical stakeholder knowledge are key to its ability to work successfully with all sectors of the community to execute sustainable shoplifting prevention solutions.
As a tax-exempt, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, NASP is commissioned to provide its programs and services for the good of all stakeholders involved in the shoplifting problem. While numerous businesses have recently entered the shoplifter education arena and tried to replicate NASP’s services, they have fallen short. The fundamental difference between NASP and other service providers is that we are not driven by sales and the bottom line; we are driven by beneficial stakeholder outcomes. The culture of our organization is fueled, in part, by our staff’s unique sensitivity to stakeholder needs that comes with years of experience, commitment and passion.
NASP’s historical body of knowledge is continuously updated, expanded and refined through our research and our collaboration with all stakeholder partners. Our proven methodologies, proprietary programs and our uniquely personal services and support give our clients what they need to reach their shoplifting prevention goals.
NASP has been the driving force in the study of consumer shoplifting and its prevention for almost 25 years. All of NASP’s activities, programs and services provide measurable results. NASP shoplifter education programs have a proven track record and maintain the lowest court- documented recidivism rate (3%) in the country.
Today, NASP is still the only national, non-profit organization which focuses solely on the study and prevention of shoplifting. NASP’s expertise in consumer shoplifting, its proven-effective programs and its long-standing relationships in the court system and the retail industry keep NASP the most highly respected shoplifting prevention organization in the nation.
