Supporting Loss Prevention Education

Loss Prevention Foundation Scholarship Program

Each year, Vector Security® grants a number of LPQ and LPC scholarships to the public. Worthy candidates for the scholarships have shown a dedication to a long-term career in North American retail loss prevention and a willingness to commit themselves to continuing their education.

The goal of the LPF Scholarship Program is to provide LPQ & LPC scholarships to well-deserving, loss prevention staff members and new entries to the retail LP industry. The scholarships fund the cost of course materials and exams related to obtaining certification from the LPF. Vector Security has awarded 209 scholarships totaling $213,220 since the program began.

The coursework for each of the programs LPQualified and ;LPCertified is explained in greater detail in documents provided by the Loss Prevention Foundation.
