LP Magazine (aka LossPrevention magazine) was established in 2001 to provide news, information, and educational content for retail security—more commonly known as loss prevention—professionals. Over the past decade and a half, LP Magazine has established itself as the leader in loss prevention news and education and the premier voice of the LP industry fulfilling its following mission statement with award-winning results including Best B2B Magazine for 2014 from NicheMedia.

LP Magazine is a high-quality, contemporary magazine dedicated to providing in-depth, timely articles of high interest to loss prevention professionals, security and retail management. Covering wide-ranging topics from investigations to technology to management skills, LP Magazine focuses on best practices and educational content critical to the growth of the LP professional from the store level to the executive suite.

LP Magazine consists of a bi-monthly print publication as well as multiple digital channels, including a comprehensive web portal, weekly e-newsletters, webinars, EyeOnLP videos, annual product directory, as well as multiple social media groups.

Since 2000 LPM Media Group’s custom publishing arm has been supporting retail organizations with internal marketing programs individualized to the corporate culture providing education and training on critical loss prevention, safety, and operational policies and procedures to ensure a well-informed, motivated employee population. These programs may consist of both print and computer-based communications and training modules as well as incentive programs.

The Loss Prevention Foundation was founded in 2009 as a not-for-profit organization to manage the industry’s LPQ and LPC certification programs. The concept for a professional certification designation for loss prevention professions was introduced by LP Magazine in 2006. Over a three-year period hundreds of LP practitioners representing dozens of retail organizations worked together to build a body of knowledge that became the basis for the two certifications. The LPQ (qualified) represents a baseline of knowledge to jump-start the novice LP employee. The LPC (certified) represents a knowledge base necessary for someone with three to five years of experience that provides a foundation for LP management success.
