About Us

???????????????????????????????Shoplifting and Theft Awareness Class (SATA) was founded by Jim Thienes, who is an active law enforcement officer. Jim was asked to developed this class by a county probation office. That county strongly believed in an In-Person class being of a greater impact than simply one on-line.  Jim believes re-education is a better goal than mere punishment. He is the founder of Driving with Safety and Respect (www.dwsr.org) witch is an all encompassing 3 hour driver Re-Education class held in both Anoka and Washington Counties. 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
