"Hire-A-Vet" Program is Committing

The retail prevention industry needs more and more highly disciplined leaders in positions of responsibility. A Veteran is a capable problem solver with a proven will to endure set-backs and to press on to meet challenges set before them. Most soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines are already highly trained in the major areas of discipline that employers desire.

The Loss Prevention Foundation is working hard to help our vets get certified and to find exciting employment opportunities. By enrolling as a job seeker, you are also identifying yourself as interested in a possible LPQ scholarship. The LPF will facilitate all such requests which will be evaluated on a merit basis via the varying funding sources that the LPF has identified.
