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 of a professional certification designation for loss prevention professionals 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 LPQualified represents a baseline of knowledge to jump-start the novice LP employee. The LPCertified represents a knowledge base necessary for someone with three to five years of experience that provides a foundation for LP management success. After years of building on its success, the LP Foundation purchased LP Magazine in 2022.
Since 2000 LPM Media Group has provided custom publishing to retail organizations including internal marketing programs individualized to the corporate culture for education and training on critical loss prevention, safety, and operational policies and procedures to ensure a well-informed, motivated employee population. These programs consist of both print and computer-based communications and training modules as well as incentive programs.
