Retail Theft

Surveillance camera at supermarket

OVERVIEW

In June 2023, the Commission received a request from the California state legislature to look at issues surrounding state retail theft data. In response, the Commission is holding a series of hearings examining how retail theft and corresponding arrests, filings, and convictions are reported and tracked, and whether there are improvements that could be made to better inform evidence-based decision-making.
