Bergen County has many retail shopping malls and municipal retail strip malls and stores. Every day, many shoplifters are detained by mall security guards and security personnel thanks to surveillance camera’s, other shoppers or security systems. Many of these shoplifters are arrested and criminal charges are filed against them, to be followed up by prosecution in the courts.

The Paramus Municipal Court, which handles many shoplifting cases each year from the town’s various malls and many retail stores and the Hackensack Municipal Court, which also handles many shoplifting cases each year from the town’s many retail stores, are just two examples of definitive prosecution against shoplifters, often accompanied by jail time.
