Loss prevention is a difficult but rewarding career path. During a special ceremony under the banner of the National Retail Federation Loss Prevention (LP) Conference in June, winners of the 2013 Loss Prevention Awards were honored. They include LP teams that excelled in making a difference in their communities; a law enforcement professional who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to assist a retailer; and two investigators whose work has made a significant positive impact on their company, community and the industry at large.
