The Effects of Shoplifting on the Community Shoplifting is a major problem in today life.
More likely to displace crime behavior.
Less likely to displace or will take longer to do so. Examples of this would include violence used during robbery, or by drug dealers to collect payments or to deter other drug dealers from operating in their turf zones.
The presence of crime opportunities also determines when and where displacement occurs. For many of the reasons already discussed, displacement is more likely where there are other suitable crime targets. This is contingent upon the offenders' motivation and familiarity with the crime targets and tactics needed to carry out the crime.
Responses that occur adjacent to areas that have unprotected crime targets are more likely to experience some level of displacement compared to those that do not.
Being aware of other crime opportunities near your response area allows you to anticipate the possibility of crime movement.
Why Displacement May Not Occur Some criminality theories suggest that displacement inevitably occurs because crime behavior is the product of societal forces outside the individual, which instill criminal predispositions, or drives, within offenders.
Because of the assumed need for offenders to "purge" their criminal tendencies or sustain certain income levels from criminal enterprises, this view contends that blocking crime opportunities through situational alterations inevitably compels offenders to seek out other crime opportunities e.
Yet, this displacement assumption fails to recognize the important role that opportunity and temptation play in crime. Offenders displace their criminal behavior only when the risks and effort of committing new crimes are worth the reward. In other words, opportunities to commit crime are not evenly distributed across time and place.
Another aspect to consider is that when crime opportunities are closed down, committing other crimes is not the only way offenders can meet their needs.
Blocking crime opportunities can make satisfying individual needs through legitimate activities more appealing. Consider the following examples. It is unlikely a casual shoplifter would travel to a distant supermarket when newly introduced security makes it impossible for him to steal the odd item at his local market.
It is also unlikely that commuters would seek another, less convenient route to work if it became impossible for them to exceed the speed limit on their current route.
It is also implausible that travelers who casually take hotel items would expend the effort to seek out hotels that did not secure their alarm clocks, wall pictures, or closet hangers.
Finally, when a store well known for selling alcohol to underage drinkers is shut down or otherwise brought into compliance, it is doubtful underage drinkers will simply go down the road to the next vendor because most vendors do not distribute to minors and the youth may not know which other ones do.
Put simply, very easy opportunities encourage crime and taking them out reduces the amount of crime committed.
An offender's decision as to whether to displace his crime behavior in the aftermath of a response is shaped by the variety of circumstances found among other crime types, targets, times, tactics, and places.
Offenders' knowledge is bounded in terms of knowing how to commit various types of crime e. Offenders are less likely to commit crimes in unfamiliar locations or that involve unfamiliar tactics and targets.
This means less crime, at least in the near term. Some offenders have a limited amount of time to commit crime.Shoplifting can also affect you towards the community, because if you have shoplifting on your record it will be difficult to get a job, some don’t want people who break the law working for them.
Just shoplifting from that store will prevent you from getting a job there ever or any of that kind if it is a chain. San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom speaks during the presentation for the 34th annual America’s Cup at City Hall in San Francisco, California, January 5, The Trial of Lizzie Borden.

It involves taking advantage of other hardworking people in many different ways; the stores have to buy equipment to try to prevent shoplifting, while other consumers must pay for items for the system to work.
