Justice System

Uphold justice. Save time and budget. Repair communities.
Spend less time and resources on investigating and prosecuting retail theft with a system that keeps first time offenders from becoming serial shoplifters.
 
Turning Point Justice helps communities ensure more offenders are held accountable for shoplifting while simplifying the administration of shoplifting offenses. For eligible first time offenders, Turning Point Justice offers restorative justice solutions approved by court systems – all at no cost to police, justice systems, or retailers. The Turning Point Justice solutions free up time and resources for police departments, prosecutors, judges, and the many other professionals that support the legal system.

 

Law Enforcement
Reduce Paperwork, Save Time

The Cloud Justice Platform used by retail Loss Prevention Agents reduces law enforcement time spent responding to and processing retail theft incidents. Designed to ensure retailers comply with local laws, the Cloud Justice platform integrates into inventory, identification, and criminal records systems to gather case information and evidence in real time.
 
First time shoplifters repair the damage to themselves and their community through renowned National Association of Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) education programs. Shoplifters participating in the C. A. Partnership Program (CAP) offered by NASP and TPJ reduce the need for police visits to retail locations.
 
Time pressures and budget constraints make it difficult for police departments nationwide to maximize the time they spend in their communities. Every minute spent completing retail theft paperwork or testifying in court is a minute that officers are not able to participate in proactive police work.
 
Police departments in communities using the TPJ programs report:
  • 41% fewer police calls to participating stores
  • 70 police hours saved per month, per participating retail chain
  • Reduced petty theft reports in the community


Accountability Reforms Behaviors, Repairs Communities
Shoplifting is one of the most common crimes in America, but due to our overwhelmed justice system, less than 1% of shoplifters are apprehended and even when caught, more than 70%  face no consequences for their actions. Retailers participating in Turning Point Justice programs report increased apprehensions, meaning that more shoplifters are being held accountable for their actions and reformed when they commit their very first offense. When a serial shoplifter is apprehended, the integration with GIS criminal record databases enables retailers to contact law enforcement for help with apprehending serial shoplifters in their communities.



Justice System Professionals
Educate Offenders and Repair Communities
 
Nationally-recognized online and offline education solutions from the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) ensure first-time offenders remain positive community members.
 
Turning Point Justice is the only restorative justice provider offering Crime Accountability Programs facilitated by the renowned National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) education programs trusted by justice systems nationwide.


Streamline Petty Theft Administration
When a shoplifter is apprehended, the Cloud Justice platform that Turning Point Justice provides to retailers collects photo and video evidence of the theft and prepares a comprehensive police report, including statements from the offender given at the time of the incident, ensuring comprehensive evidence is collected even if police officers are not called to the scene.
 

Correcting Behavior with Crime Accountability Programs
First-time shoplifters who are eligible to participate in the C. A. Partnership Program (CAP) complete the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) education program and pay restitution to the retailer without involving law enforcement or the justice system, saving money for governments and taxpayers.

The Cloud Justice platform will prompt the Loss Prevention Agent to call the local police non-emergency dispatch number when:

  • The shoplifter is a repeat offender
  • The crime is committed for the purpose of resale or Organized Retail Crime (ORC)
  • The offender is physically aggressive or non-compliant
  • The offender appears to be mentally incompetent or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • The offender requests that the case be handled through the traditional justice system
The C. A. Partnership Program ensures shoplifters are held accountable for their actions by supporting immediate consequences that are consistently applied and proportionate to the offense committed, ensuring shoplifters learn that shoplifting is a crime that their community takes seriously.
