Shoplifters Interventions
The Office of Criminal Justice Services has two options available to address the need of shoplifters interventions. Participants in these programs learn about and address issues relating to shoplifting, theft, and the thinking that may result in these offenses. The "STOP" Education Program consists of one 3 (three) hour facilitator lead group. Groups are held in neighboring local jurisdictions.
