Innovative Solutions for Safer Retail Spaces

By taking a collaborative approach and addressing the underlying issues that contribute to retail crime, retailers can create safer and more inclusive environments for both their customers and associates.

AFA Protective Systems, a longstanding doctorate-level partner of the Loss Prevention Foundation, is proud to support the retail LP industry in a new and innovative way. In these unprecedented times, AFA presented a scholarship a day for the month of May to give back and support the industry. Thirty-one LP/AP professionals received either a LPQ course scholarship valued at $495 or LPC course scholarship valued at $795.

“During these challenging times, we wanted to show our support for the loss prevention and asset protection community and give back in a meaningful way,” said Steve Hyle, vice president and director of national accounts at AFA Protective Systems. “Each year we have opportunities to award scholarships and get them into the hands of those that can most benefit from the LPQ and LPC certifications. We want to help make a difference. We’re all affected by what’s going on today, and this is our way of giving back.”

If you are looking to advance your professional development and personal growth, take advantage of this valuable opportunity to apply for a LP certification course scholarship (LPQ or LPC), courtesy of AFA. Winners were announced each Monday beginning May 11, 2020.
