The National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) is a non-profit organization which specializes in working with consumers, teens and children who have shoplifted. NASP conducts research and offers education, prevention and rehabilitation programs in addition to self-help and support services.
NASP has been setting the standard for research-based, court-approved shoplifter programs since 1977. NASP programs were created from years of extensive research surrounding the thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, perceptions, motivations and behaviors of more than 500,000 adult and juvenile shoplifting offenders.
NASP’s core programs, the Shoplifters Alternative Course (SA Course) for adults and the Youth Educational Shoplifting Program (Y.E.S. Program) for juveniles, have been approved by thousands of criminal justice professionals and utilized in more than 2,000 jurisdictions, nationwide.
NASP is a private non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
