Crime Prevention for Commercial
and Retail Business

The live virtual Crime Prevention for Commercial and Retail Business seminar is designed expressly for law enforcement and security personnel.  This three-day training program focuses specifically upon the risk factors and threats experienced by the business community on a daily basis.

Community crime prevention officers and specialists should be knowledgeable
of business crime prevention threats and risks as well as crime
prevention initiatives and programs to prevent and mitigate them.

This crime prevention training program has been developed to provide law enforcement and security personnel with the skills and knowledge to help make their business communities safer and more secure.

Most local businesses do not have loss prevention or internal security departments.  This often means the community crime prevention office or specialist is the business manager or owner's primary source of help in combatting business crime.

The Crime Prevention for Commercial and Retail Business seminar is a certification training program. Seminar participants who successfully complete this training program will be recognized as "Certified Commercial and Retail Crime Prevention Specialists".

Resource Materials
Seminar participants will receive a free copy of ACPI's proprietary publication, The Complete Commercial and Retail Crime Prevention Manual. Designed expressly for crime prevention officers and specialist, this 480 page publication focuses upon important risk factors and threats experience in the business community on a daily basis.
