8th April 2013

On 8th April 2013 police received a call from a concerned parent that two 11-year-old girls had been stealing from a shop in the Redcar and Cleveland area after the sweets had been found in a bedroom.

The children admitted taking sweets from the shop without paying. The adult didn’t want anything to happen with the children through the Criminal Justice System, but wanted them educating about the wrongs of what they had done. Police identified the shop manager who agreed for the girls to visit the shop and apologise – the shop manager and officer spoke with the girls and discussed the implications of shoplifting. The girl’s family members were also in agreement with the RJ approach.
