Bill Turner, LPC, has been a reader and contributor to Loss Prevention magazine since its inception in 2001. Now, as the publication celebrates its 15-year anniversary, Turner looks back at the early history of Loss Prevention magazine (now known as LP Magazine) in a feature article in the September-October 2016 issue.
“As Executive Editor Jim Lee and Managing Editor Jack Trlica tell the story, it began with the belief that retail loss prevention professionals needed their own magazine. The magazine’s mission, as originally drafted, was to ‘provide the industry with a high-quality, contemporary magazine of high interest to retail loss prevention management and professionals.’ The concept was introduced in June 2001 at the National Retail Federation (NRF) loss prevention conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. The response from the majority of the LP professionals and vendors in attendance was ‘it’s about time.’Turner examines the magazine’s mainstay subjects since the nascent days of the publication in detail. These topics make up the building blocks of the magazine’s foundation and are still central to the loss prevention industry today. Some of these subjects include: • Shoplifting and Organized Retail Crime (ORC) • Crisis Management • Fraud • The National Retail Security Survey (NRSS) and Employee Theft • Loss Prevention Technology • Shrink Reduction and Loss Prevention Programs • People, Education, and Diversity Check out “Fifteen Years of Loss Prevention” to read the full article and learn more about the history of Loss Prevention magazine’s first five years.
