We believe that the success of the loss prevention/asset protection department at an organization is indistinguishable from the success of the entire enterprise. To effectively combat and deter theft, fraud, and violence, we conduct research for retailers, manufacturers, and technology providers to ensure an evidence-based approach to fighting crime in the industry.


The benefits of LPRC membership far outweigh any cost. The collaboration in the Working Groups, the research available on the Knowledge Center, the annual IMPACT conference, and being a part of this community have all enabled better decision making in my business.

LPRC continues to be the leading resource for AP/LP professionals to collaborate and learn how research has tackled the problems facing all of us in the industry. It provides us a wealth of scientific data that can be utilized when we are faced with new and challenging issues regarding such things as fraud and violence.

When I heard about LPRC, I immediately joined and I was able network and connect with other Loss Prevention professionals that had overcome the pain points I was experiencing. They were willing to share what worked for them, who helped them and what was done to solve their LP challenges.  No need to reinvent the wheel.  Just ask the pros.

My main advice for someone thinking of joining the LPRC is to be open to new ideas and innovative processes. That’s what this community is about – collaboratively coming up with and looking at new solutions from an academic perspective, then testing it in the field for the betterment of your company and the industry.

All retailers should regularly engage with each other and scientists to share problems, and tested-solutions- that’s what we do at the LPRC.
