Turning Point for Civil Demand

A Paradigm Shift
Part 2

In the last vendor showcase from CDA, I introduced Lohra Miller of Turning Point Retail (TPR). She is a former 20-year prosecutor and elected district attorney. Since that time, we attended F.M.I. and decided to revise part 2 based upon the incredibly exciting feedback we received from retailers at that conference. Together we have been listening to retailer’s concerns about the future of loss prevention and have worked to develop a solution that works for both you and the criminal justice community.

Civil Demand Associates has been assisting retailers with their recovery efforts for over 26 years. We understand the history of loss prevention and see a need for change. TPR is at the cutting edge of that change and we want to be a part of it. After learning more about the revolutionary changes developed by TPR, we hope you will as well.

If you would like more information or want to comment, our information is below.

Turning Point Retail:

As stated in the previous D&D vendor spotlight, TPR’s collaborative approach to retail theft involves working with communities and retailers to streamline the process and improve offender accountability. To accomplish this, we have created a “criminal justice network” which allows each retailer to input qualification standards for offenders they feel would be appropriate to participate in an alternative accountability program. When stopped at stores within a participating jurisdiction, the TPR network then applies these qualification standards and offers appropriate offenders the option of participating in the alternative program.

Offenders who accept and complete this program will have the theft incident and program participation documented on a national theft offender database, but will avoid the costs and potential consequences of a criminal conviction. Offenders who do not participate or fail to complete program will be referred by TPR to the appropriate criminal justice agency along with a completed police report to be held accountable through the criminal process. This initial screening tool allows retailers and criminal justice officials to ensure appropriate offender accountability, while quickly resolving agreed upon cases. This frees up scarce resources to deal with the more serious cases and hold non-compliant offenders accountable

TPR’s program relies upon both criminal justice and retailer support to resolve this complicated and costly community problem. We at TPR are aware that change starts from the top and are raising public and corporate awareness of the program, the philosophies behind it and the benefits to your organization. If you are interested in learning more or would like to have TPR present to your organization, please contact Lohra Miller at (801) 671-3681 or
