About Us

???????????????????????????????Shoplifting and Theft Awareness Class (SATA) was founded by Jim Thienes, who is an active law enforcement officer. Jim developed this class after seeing a critical need in the justice system to offer an option for offenders. Jim believes re-education is a better goal than mere punishment. Presenting critical information, in a professional and effective manner, is the primary objective of SATA. Jim is a Certified Shoplifting and Theft Awareness Trainer through the national NAADAC and LPCA based in Georgia

As a way of giving back to the community, SATA donates 5% of the gross proceeds to food shelves in the county where a class is held.
