NASP gratefully acknowledges the generosity and good will of our partners. Their donations of time, energy, technical assistance and expertise are critical to the fulfillment of our mission and the success of the Say No To Shoplifting campaign.
"As a parent and a professional in the retail industry, I often found myself asking: 'What can we do to prevent today’s youthful shoplifting offenders from becoming tomorrow’s employee theft, ORC, online and petty theft offenders?' NASP’s Y.E.S. Program and the Say No To Shoplifting Campaign are the answer. We believe that partnering with the NASP and reaching young offenders early is a great way to stop crime and dispel the notion that selling goods via the internet is an easy, anonymous way to make a quick buck. The results of their program for reducing repeat offenders are fascinating.”

“Say No To Shoplifting is a community-friendly yet proven-effective intervention for juvenile shoplifting offenders. Our member stores, who by the nature of their business are often members of the community themselves, now have a means to reach out and support families in a significant way after a shoplifting incident involving their child. Changing a negative contact into a positive learning experience for a child in our community is a win-win for our member stores, the families involved and the communities we serve.”

"LPF certification programs are designed to give individuals the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge about retail, business, leadership and loss prevention and use ongoing educational opportunities to give loss prevention professionals the resources they need to move their careers forward. The Say No To Shoplifting Campaign applies these same ideas to helping youthful offenders put shoplifting behind them once and for all. Through the education provided in the Y.E.S. Program juveniles carefully examine their behavior, gain valuable knowledge and insight and begin to build the critical decision-making skills needed to move their lives forward on a more positive, responsible path.”

“Today’s youthful shoplifter can grow-up to be tomorrow’s ORC offender if the underlying criminal behavior goes unaddressed. NASP’s “Say No To Shoplifting” campaign is an effective early intervention tool that educates juvenile shoplifters about the consequences of their actions and empowers them to make good life choices before their criminal behavior escalates. As an industry, we cannot ignore the problem of juvenile shoplifting. NASP’s “Say No To Shoplifting” confronts the problem head-on.”
