HKLPA's Mission Statements
The mission of the HKLPA is to achieve:
1. Loss prevention principles fully recognised, integrated with and central to enterprise development and management.
2. Loss prevention practice comprehensively adopted, continuously improving.
3. Loss prevention practitioners acknowledged as professionals, always learning.
The integration of the loss prevention model into the planning and operations of enterprises will be seamless. The strategic management role of business will be protected by loss prevention; crisis & emergency management. The loss and prevention department may [will] disappear as the core management team comprises team leaders in other functions - marketing management, financial management, IT, production, operations, logistics or supply channel.
In public sector and not-for-profit enterprises, the comprehensive loss prevention model will likewise be the key framework on which the management of the enterprise is based, in terms of protecting products/ services, in terms of establishing the loss prevention culture, and in terms of the delivery of loss prevention services.
While loss prevention principles will come to be seen as central to understanding the protection of businesses and the way they should be planned and managed, recognition of the true role of loss prevention will mean that every facet of the relationship with stakeholders in the company, through the supply chain to the customer, will be guided by loss prevention principles. In implementation as in planning, loss prevention will be the dominant paradigm. At the same time, the relationship between practice and theory will be strengthened and made both synergistic and interdependent. From this much closer relationship, continuous evolution and improvement will flow.
The recognition and adoption of loss prevention; crisis & emergency management will give natural attention to loss prevention practitioners who will be acknowledged as true professionals; knowledge workers whose theory, framework of practice and code of conduct identify them as members of a distinct and defined group. Those who form the vanguard of practice as well as those who aspire to leadership will respond to the challenge for life-long learning as a mark of dedication to their cause and as a natural consequence of one of the key attributes of any successful loss prevention practitioners — a relentless curiosity about human behaviour and the way individual and community transactions take place in an organised society.
