The seminar serves as an alternative method for school administrators, parents, and law enforcement agencies to decrease shoplifting offenses amongst our youth population. The seminar includes what a youth (12-18) needs to know about shoplifting so that he/she can make better decisions in the future. Shoplifting Prevention Seminar consists of a panel that includes a detective, security compliance officer, and an Assistant Prosecutor from the Union County Prosecutor’s Office. Seminars take place three times per year throughout the county for 1.5 hours per session.
