CLEAR Cancels Annual Training Conference

By Ben Dugan, CLEAR President

For the first time in our eleven-year history, the National Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail (C.L.E.A.R.) will cancel its annual training conference due to national concerns regarding the COVID-19 public health crisis. We have been closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19, and the unpredictability of the virus, and the fact that there may be a second wave in the fall, make it impossible to plan the event and keep everyone safe.

We want to express our sincerest gratitude to our members fighting on the front lines against this pandemic. From setting up COVID-19 testing sites, securing Ports with cruise ships full of victims, to providing food and necessities to the public, C.L.E.A.R. members are answering the call in communities nationwide.

Aligned with our commitment to provide training to the Law Enforcement and Retail communities, we look to digital opportunities — today, we are very excited to announce our partnership with the Global Retail Crime Summit presented by Auror.

Join the Global Retail Crime Summit from wherever you are, for free, on July 16, 2020. There is no question, the role of AP/LP is more important than ever to ensure retail organizations thrive in the wake of COVID-19.

Join transformational AP/LP executives, aspiring leaders, next-level investigators, heroic store professionals, and law enforcement from around the world for an unprecedented day of digital discovery, learning, and networking.

Looking forward to "seeing" you all soon.
