Shoplifting and related crimes are collectively costing the average Australian household more than A$424 per year. The cost to Australian retailers is A$2.7 billion per year (Global Retail Theft Barometer).
Healthy businesses in Tasmania mean stronger economic growth that leads to higher standards of living and increased opportunities for all Tasmanians.
Solutions aimed at reducing shoplifting must involve businesses, business groups and the community as a whole.
The objective is to Empower Tasmanian businesses to report, reduce and prevent incidences of shoplifting.
This objective supports the overall purpose of Crime Stoppers Tasmania’s Business Crime Strategy, which is to Enhance business confidence by reducing the cost of crime against Tasmanian businesses.
