PITTSBURGH, January 14, 2013 - Vector Security®, Inc., the provider of intelligent security solutions tailored to the needs of customers, is accepting applications for its 2013 Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) scholarship program from January 15, 2013 through March 15, 2013. Applications can be downloaded via the Vector Security website at www.vectorsecurity.com/networks/loss-prevention-foundation-scholarship or the Loss Prevention Foundation website at www.losspreventionfoundation.org

The scholarships provide financial support to loss prevention professionals – or those who have an interest in loss prevention – seeking to obtain LPQ and LPC certifications. Vector Security began awarding the scholarships in 2009 in support of career development and continuing education for professionals in this important and rapidly-growing industry.

The scholarships cover all course and examination fees for retail loss prevention professionals who wish to obtain LPF’s Loss Prevention Qualified (LPQ) or Loss Prevention Certified (LPC) certifications.

Last year, the program was expanded to Canada and will continue this year as well. A total of 10 LPQ and 10 LPC scholarships will be awarded to U.S.-based professionals, while another five LPC scholarships will be awarded to Canadian-based professionals.

“We value the contributions loss prevention professionals make to this industry and are extremely pleased to offer the LPF scholarship program once again,” said Michael Grady, Executive Vice President, Vector Security. “Our commitment to this profession remains strong. Over the years, LPQ and LPC certifications have become immensely popular and well-respected. We’re honored to assist worthy individuals who otherwise may be hindered by the costs associated with obtaining this certification.”

Anyone currently in the loss prevention industry, or has an interest in the industry, may apply for an LPQ scholarship. Those applying for the LPC scholarship must meet certain eligibility requirements. Detailed information can be found at www.vectorsecurity.com/networks/loss-prevention-foundation-scholarship.

Vector Security has awarded 85 scholarships totaling more than $84,500 since the program began.
