good question.... I don't think there is any expectation of privacy, and I don't think you'd run into any likeness rights issues.... but they would have to be convicted of the crime or it could be considered libel IIRC

I have seen the photos in many businesses. I don't know the legalities of it. Maybe it is okay if you put a black bar over their eyes.

just got e mail from PD Adjutant.
"There is no legal issue here. You would be able to post a picture in your store of a suspected shoplifter, but you should have something to support the allegation incase they tried to claim you were discrediting them."
