ALTO's Industry Partners

Loss Prevention Research Council

The LPRC strives to provide comprehensive research, development opportunities, and collaborative spaces for our members that will enable the innovation of loss & crime control solutions.

We believe that the success of the loss prevention/asset protection department at an organization is indistinguishable from the success of the entire enterprise. To effectively combat and deter theft, fraud, and violence, we conduct research for retailers, manufacturers, and technology providers to ensure an evidence-based approach to fighting crime in the industry.

Retail Industry Leaders Association

RILA recognizes that ubiquitous internet access, changing consumer values, preferences, and lifestyles, coupled with the desire for increased on-demand shopping, have led to unprecedented disruption in virtually every industry; retail perhaps more than any other. America’s retailers are transforming and so is the field of asset protection.

RILA is committed to supporting the AP industry’s efforts to adapt to today’s consumer needs without compromising safety, security, and profit. Those AP teams who embrace change and grow, find new ways to be relevant in their organization, and influence decision-makers will come out on top.

RILA offers AP professionals a way to connect with their peers and other executives through benchmarking calls and in-person meetings for its AP communities. These activities empower RILA member executives to touch base with their peers throughout the year - sharing insights, collaborating to solve common problems, and aligning on initiatives that bring shared value to their organizations.

Asset Protection Leaders Council

ALTO is a Strategic Partner for RILA's Asset Protection Leaders Council. The Council convenes the senior-most asset protection leaders from the country’s top retailers —the executives who oversee shrink management, crime deterrent strategies, employee and customer safety, regulatory compliance, business continuity, and more. This group gathers regularly to network, explore and critique the business implications of a wide spectrum of asset protection issues and to provide RILA with strategic direction in this area.
