What is shoplifting?
 
Shoplifting is a type of theft. It is when you steal items from a shop without paying for them.
 
What happens if you get caught?
 
If you are caught by a security guard shoplifting you will almost certainly be banned from ever shopping at that store again! You may also be given a Civil Recovery Notice – this note is from the store and outlines how they plan to recover the money that they have lost through your actions.
 
People ages 16+ may also face a £80 fixed fine called a Fixed Penalty ticket.
 
Who pays for the goods that are stolen?
 
We all do. When shops lose out on money they need to find a way to earn this back. One option is to increase the cost of the items in their store – meaning we have to pay for it when we next do our shopping.
