In the world of loss prevention, 2022 was an eventful year. Retail crime increased, multiple states made steps to fight organized retail crime, and store violence became a greater issue than ever before.
One great way to reflect on the events of the past year is to look back at the six magazine issues LPM put out in 2022—four quarterly publications, and two special editions exploring organized retail crime and innovation.
Here, look back at the topics explored in all six issues, and be sure to share your favorite stories with the rest of your LP team.
