Suggestions on How to Prevent Stealing @ CHS
How Teachers/Staff Can Get Involved
Staff members can also watch for students physically stealing things. If they see this happen, they have the authority to step in and stop them. Perhaps they might see a student who is taking an iPad or a phone; it doesn't hurt to ask if it's theirs or not.
Teachers and staff have the power of authority, which is important in order to prevent stealing. “'The presence of a teacher or administrator is always a deterrent,'” Inson said. '[People] don’t want to get caught,'" (Thompson and Campbell). By showing good characteristics and emphasizing honesty and values, students will be less likely to steal in that class. And if every teacher could do that, then stealing would be very minimal, if nonexistent. Sure, students still find loopholes, but with adults helping out, we can make those loopholes very tight.
