Several companies are now hiring loss prevention supervisors in various U.S. locations. LP supervisors or managers are the LP employees who supervise loss prevention agents and store detectives in their duties of preventing shoplifting, fraud and vandalism, as well as ensuring the safety and security of shoppers.
LP supervisors plan and direct policies, procedures, and systems to prevent the loss of assets. They also determine risk exposure or potential liability, and develop risk control measures.
Management skills, including human resources, are usually required of LP supervisors. They are also expected to detect safety issues and security violations, and to put programs in place to prevent repeat occurrences.
