HEAR FROM PARTICIPANTS

Opelika, AL

“The influx of shoppers ahead of the holiday season creates additional complexities at brick and mortar locations. In an effort to best serve the friends and families that make up the heart of Opelika, we are excited to partner with LVT and our valued local retailers to streamline response efforts and bolster community safety.”
—Opelika Chief of Police Shane Healey

Paducah, Ky

“Paducah is a regional shopping hub with numerous national and local retailers. As such, Paducah sees increased retail crime, particularly during the fast-approaching holiday shopping season. We are constantly working to improve the quality of life and decrease crime in Paducah. We believe that deploying LVT’s security units in partnership with local retailers will improve our ability to diminish crime and care for not only our citizens, but also visitors to Paducah.”
—Paducah Police Chief Brian Laird
Making Communities Safer

Working together for you

The ACCESS Taskforce, or Alliance of Companies and Communities to Enhance Safety and Security, is a four-pronged effort to increase community safety by reducing retail crime. Local retailers, government, and the police departments will work with LVT to collect and share data that will track retail crimes and help them make informed decisions.

66%

Launching the Taskforce

Putting The Team In Action

The ACCESS Taskforce will be put to the test in Opelika, AL and Paducah, KY. LVT will deploy up to 100 mobile surveillance units to the retail parking lots in the two cities. Once the units are placed, retailers, police, and the cities will share data with the Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) who will help track trends and anonymize the data. The data will be available to participants and will allow them to get ahead of crime and make their cities safer.
