Director of Communications Barbara Staib with the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) provides a closer look at the National Shoplifting Prevention Coalition (NSPC)—a retail industry collaboration that harnesses the power of a collective retail voice to create permanent change in the way the nation regards, prevents, and responds to shoplifting to positively impact shrink and store safety. In these trying times when we ping pong between the need for law and order and the need for social and criminal justice reforms, NSPC members are taking action, creating change, and standing up for both law and order and social and criminal justice reforms.
Director of Communications, National Association for Shoplifting Prevention
Barbara Staib is the director of communications at the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP). NASP is a private nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise public awareness about the harmful effects of shoplifting on youth, families and communities, unite public opinion toward constructive solutions, deliver needed programs and services, and engage community action in prevention efforts to improve the lives of those affected, and reduce the number of people who become involved.
In response to the scope and severity of organized retail crime concerns across the country, there has been an increased effort on the part of retailers and law enforcement agencies to share information regarding organized retail crime at the local, state, and regional levels. Organized retail crime associations have helped provide that vehicle, opening doors to improve legislation, enhance investigations, and build cooperative relationships in the battle against organized retail crime.
In appreciation and support of all of their local and regional efforts, LP Magazine has prepared an exciting series of webinars, podcasts and virtual conferences to promote and further the mission of these vital organizations.
