The Theft Recovery Program is a standard alternative to jail for the first offense shoplifter. The offender is required to make a list of all unreported thefts they may have committed in the last three years, verify the lists accuracy through a polygraph examination, and make restitution. Clients are granted immunity for any misdemeanor thefts that are on their list. This program requires the offender to accept responsibility for their past thefts and to start over with a new decision about not stealing.
