Shoplifting and Theft Prevention

Shoplifting is a popular term used for the unnoticed theft of goods from an
open retail establishment. Shoplifting typically involves a person concealing a
store item on their person, in pockets or under clothes and leaving the store
without paying for it.
The Shoplifting and Theft Prevention Classes are awareness and
prevention courses. The class is an intensive workshop that concentrates on
harm reduction and lower recidivism. Participants are encouraged to discuss
life circumstances and issues that have led to criminal activities.

How Shoplifting is Charged and Punished
In many states, shoplifting is charged and punished as a theft or larceny
offense usually as a petty theft or the state’s lowest-level theft offense if the

of charging and sentencing, and may treat shoplifting less severely than other
theft offenses.

Civil Liability for Shoplifting
In addition to any criminal penalties stemming from a shoplifting offense,
every state has a civil law under which any person who commits shoplifting
can be held civilly liable to the store owner for money damages stemming
from the incident. And in almost every state, the parent or legal guardian of a
minor who commits shoplifting may also be on the hook for money damages
although a few states require that the parent or guardian knew or should
have known of the minor’s proclivity toward shoplifting.
