The LPM team is privileged to have a front-row seat as observers of the loss prevention industry. One aspect of our role is to find ways to celebrate the positive contributions of the loss prevention and asset protection community. As a result, we are proud to launch the LPM Excellence recognition initiative. Rather than a once-a-year recognition program, we decided to establish a means to celebrate industry accomplishments on an ongoing basis, recognizing the loss prevention professionals, teams, solution providers, law enforcement partners, and others who demonstrate a stellar contribution to the profession. Chief William Gross is among our inaugural recipients.
Excellence in Partnerships
William Gross, Superintendent-in-Chief, Boston Police Department
Chief Gross has dedicated his life working to create a winning culture and a strong, positive relationship between the community and the police department. Working closely with his department, he has championed several programs to help bridge these gaps and help build a positive impression of the police and what they do. As a dedicated advocate of our partnership, he frequently touts the power of cooperation between the retail community and the police department, and the different ways that all of us can get involved and make a difference when we work together. We need both innovation and cooperation to help us move forward, and the programs in Boston are a clear example of the power of partnership.
LPM Excellence Nominations Are Encouraged
We want this to be your program. You witness these exceptional performances at all levels of the organization on a regular basis. We ask you to provide us with nominees for each of the award categories. We encourage creative nominations and want the program to cast a positive light on the many tremendous contributions that all too often go unrecognized in the greater loss prevention community. Nominations can be submitted via email to excellence (at) LPportal (dot) com.
