In a recent News Release for Lohra Miller on PRWeb, she is celebrated for her leadership and persistence. Lohra Miller has a deep history in criminal justice. She served as the District Attorney and worked in the criminal justice field for twenty years. In her time working towards criminal justice, she sought to hold offenders accountable for their actions. Over the course of the two decades, she saw just how costly punishing petty offenders could be for taxpayers. This proved to be particularly true in the case of shoplifters, which costs retailers an average of thirty five million dollars in losses per day. But it isn’t simply a matter of the money lost on stolen products. The processes of the justice system in prosecuting a shoplifter quickly add up as well; the loss of funds means less money available to create new jobs for the community. In addition, law enforcement officials are called to the scene to report the instance, taking time away from pursuing other criminal incidents. Furthermore, for months officials can be called into court on the issue, taking even more state funds and time from patrol.
With budgets shrinking across the United States, Miller made it her goal to seek some form of solution to streamline the process. After leaving her career in criminal justice behind, she began the founding of Turning Point Justice, which works to smooth out the prosecution process for shoplifters. The company uses the cloud—specifically, what Miller entitled the Cloud Justice platform—to streamline the process, uniting identification, criminal record, and law enforcement databases with GPS tracking while gathering evidence, calculating restitution, and preparing police and civil demand reports. The technology is customized to match local laws and retail practices as it walks loss prevention agents through each step. Cloud Justice is provided at no cost to retailers, and companies including Sears, Kmart and Gabe’s are already introducing the systems in stores. Fundamentally, the company is dedicated to returning all lost funds to retailers, as restitution is amongst its top priorities.
Another component Miller sought to bring to her company is education for qualifying first time offenders. To complete this goal, Miller teamed up with the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention (NASP) to co-develop the Crime Accountability Program (CAP). This program allows first time offenders to pay a program fee; with this fee, the shoplifter is provided opportunities to pay back restitution to the retailer and complete a NASP shoplifter education program, the same programs used by court systems in 49 states nationwide. All education programs applied are managed to comply with both state and CAP requirements. To read the full release, click here.
