Shoplifting is an issue that is most effective and most efficiently addressed when the entire community of stakeholders works together. The actions and approach of retailers, law enforcement and criminal justice are at the heart of these efforts in any community.
Retailers and the justice community set the tone for the tolerance of community crime with regard to shoplifting.
The goal of any community collaboration is to bridge the gaps between retailers, law enforcement and criminal justice by creating a streamlined and uniform response to shoplifting – a response that minimizes the expenditure of police, criminal justice, and retailer resources and maximizes the value of each apprehension in preventing recidivism.
Working with all stakeholders in the retail theft issue gives NASP a neutral and uniquely global point of view in terms of the pain points and competing priorities that often lead to ineffective solutions. Driven by universally beneficial stakeholder outcomes, NASP is best qualified to serve as the voice of the shoplifting problem rather than that of any one stakeholder.
NASP’s experience in rehabilitating shoplifting offenders, its proven-effective programs and its considerable connections to both retail and criminal justice nationwide, give NASP the proven ability to create, execute and maintain sustainable community solutions that reduce shoplifter recidivism to less than 3%.
