Long-time LPF supporters join forces

(Matthews, NC – October 7, 2019) Two of The Loss Prevention Foundation’s (LPF) supporters have announced that they have entered into an agreement to merge. Protos Security and Security Resources have been long-time supporters of the LPF and the combined organization will now be a Doctorate level sponsor.

The merger will bring together state-of-the-art technology with a focus on customer service while alleviating the security guard management burden from the loss prevention professional. Combined, Protos Security and Security Resources have 450+ clients throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. This merger will provide unrivaled scale and reach creating enhanced opportunities to serve clients more efficiently and provide professional opportunities for its employees.

Terry Sullivan, LPC, President of the LPF said, “We are excited to see two world-class companies come together to continue to support our industry. Both organizations have been great partners of the LPF for many years and have also supported our Swing for Certification golf tournament and the Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund. Having them merge as a Doctorate level partner means so much to us and shows their continued support to education and learning. We wish them the best in this new endeavor.”

“The work that the Loss Prevention Foundation does is vital in our industry. Protos has been a proud supporter since 2016 and has been looking forward to supporting the Foundation’s mission and goals at a higher level for quite some time. We are proud to support the Foundation at the Doctorate level with SRI to ensure the resources and education are there for the retail industry,” said Kris Vece, Vice President of Client Relations, Protos Security.

“Security Resources has been a steadfast supporter of the Loss Prevention Foundation since its inception. In 2006, Gene Smith approached us with an idea called the Loss Prevention Foundation. It was brilliant and we were all in on creating standards and a curriculum for the industry. Since then, through the efforts of the Loss Prevention Foundation and its members and contributors, Loss Prevention has become a true accredited profession. SRI and Protos are unified in our common support of the Loss Prevention Foundation’s mission to advance the retail loss prevention and asset protection profession,” stated Bob Bond, Co-Founder, Security Resources.
