Shoplifting is a serious and costly crime which hurts youth, their families, stores and the community. It is the most prevalent crime in the US, averaging approximately 550,000 incidents daily equaling losses of more than $35 million per day.
Today if you ask a juvenile caught shoplifting “Why did you do it?” the most frequent reply is “I don’t know” or “It’s no big deal” suggesting a lack of awareness about the crime as it relates to themselves, the victim and the community.
The National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) and its partners have joined together to establish the Say No To Shoplifting Campaign.
Say No To Shoplifting offers help and support to parents and families who are dealing with a shoplifting issue. Say No To Shoplifting provides reliable information along with easy access to youth education programs which aid parents in helping their children learn how to put shoplifting behind them forever.
