STOPLIFT Program

 

STOPLIFT is a one-day educational program for individuals involved in shoplifting. It serves as an alternative to prosecution for both youths and adults. Participants examine their motives, learn about the legal consequences of continued shoplifting, and develop appropriate behavior to prevent further shoplifting.

We welcome referrals from court personnel, police officers, retail security personnel, criminal justice agencies, school administrators, family members, or even self-referrals.

A class fee of $60 is required to successfully complete the program. If a participant requires financial assistance or additional mental health services, STOPLIFT staff will make the appropriate referrals. Classes are offered in Springfield (Hampden County) and Leicester and Westminster (Worcester County).
