Shop Theft Release Program

Shop Theft Release Program

This program was developed in order to divert routine shop theft calls from the regular police response cycle and to streamline the apprehension process of shop theft culprits.

The benefits of the program are:

  1. Decreased officer response time to shop theft calls
  2. Reduced down time for retail Loss Prevention Officers (L.P.O.)
  3. Increased efficiency in processing of culprits
  4. Improved consistency in the manner which culprits are dealt with, and;
  5. Prevention of arbitrary detention of culprits

Once an assessment of the offender and the crime are competed the offender may be released by the private investigator that arrested them.
