“We are proud to celebrate 10 years of partnership with the Loss Prevention Foundation to support the important and evolving profession of loss prevention,” said Michael T. Grady, LPC, Executive Vice President, Vector Security Networks. “As the security needs of multi- site businesses continue to change, including the need to integrate IT and network solutions into loss prevention more closely, it becomes increasingly important for LP professionals to stay current on industry trends and solutions. Continuing education and certification in this field will help LP professionals meet the challenges of their profession.”

"We value the contributions loss prevention professionals make to this industry and our commitment to this profession remains strong,” Grady added. “Through our scholarship program, we’re honored to assist individuals who otherwise may be hindered by the costs associated with obtaining this certification.”

Vector Security has awarded 209 scholarships totaling $213,220 since the program began in 2009. The scholarships cover all course and examination fees for retail loss prevention professionals who wish to obtain LPF’s Loss Prevention Qualified (LPQ) or Loss Prevention Certified (LPC) certifications.

“Hearing the stories of how our scholarships have helped people advance their careers makes me proud to be part of a company that cares about the industry as a whole, as well as helping individuals advance in their professions,” said Debbie Fisher, Vector Security Marketing Online Specialist, who has administered the program since its inception. “Every now and then, I will receive an email from a recipient who has just passed their exam. I love to hear about their success and the journey they took to get there. It’s not always an easy road, but their pride and hard work shows through in their accomplishments. It makes me happy to know we played a part in their story.”

In 2012, the scholarship program was expanded into Canada and will continue this year as well. A total of 10 LPQ and 10 LPC scholarships will be awarded to U.S.-based professionals, while another five LPC scholarships will be awarded to Canadian-based professionals.

Anyone currently in the loss prevention industry, or has an interest in the industry, may apply for an LPQ scholarship. Those applying for the LPC scholarship must meet certain eligibility requirements. Detailed information can be found at www.vectorsecurity.com/lpfscholarship.
