Pharmacy robberies more than doubled in Maine in 2012
Police are concerned the robberies are becoming more brazen. There were 56 pharmacy robberies last year, with drug addicts taking increasingly desperate measures, , said Steve McCausland of the Department of Public Safety. In one instance, a man robbed a pharmacy inside a Wal-Mart filled with customers in broad daylight. ‘‘These are desperate acts by desperate people, and from a law enforcement perspective it’s extremely troubling because of potential violence,’’ McCausland said. The troubling trend that led a national pharmacy chain to post armed security guards and the establishment of a state panel to identify solutions came in a year that otherwise was relatively safe, McCausland said.

LaBruno to Lead RILA’s Retail Operations Efforts,
Gasse Joins as Asset Protection Director

Arlington, VA - The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) announced today that Garth Gasse has joined the association as Director of Retail Operations, Asset Protection and Lisa LaBruno has been promoted to Senior Vice President for Retail Operations.

Lisa LaBruno joined RILA in 2010 as Vice President for Loss Prevention and Legal Affairs. In her new capacity, LaBruno will oversee RILA’s operational efforts, which bring together executives from across the retail enterprise, including supply chain and asset protection, to address challenges and advance the retail industry. LaBruno will also play a major role in the planning of RILA’s educational and networking conferences. She will report to Jenny Keehan, RILA’s executive vice president for member services.

Proir to joining RILA, LaBruno served for eight years as senior in-house attorney at The Home Depot. At The Home Depot, LaBruno also served as the primary legal adviser in matters related to criminal and unethical conduct by employees, customers and suppliers. She provided day-to-day guidance to field operations, and designed, developed and wrote loss prevention standard operating procedures and training materials.

Prior to The Home Depot, LaBruno was a corporate litigation attorney at the Archdiocese of Newark (New Jersey), Assistant Prosecutor in the Hudson County (New Jersey) Prosecutor’s Office and Associate Attorney at Hannoch Weisman. Lisa also served as an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University.

“Lisa’s experience and deep understanding of the challenges that retailers face make her uniquely suited to providing our members with the resources and support they expect from RILA,” said RILA President Sandy Kennedy.

Garth Gasse joins RILA following 14 years with Toys R Us/Babies R Us, most recently as Regional Asset Protection Manager. In his new role Gasse will work with loss prevention executives from across the retail industry to identify common challenges and leading practices. Gasse will report to Lisa LaBruno.

A 25 year retail veteran, Gasse has served in a variety of positions within the Toys R Us and Babies R Us overseeing loss prevention activities at stores throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic region. While with the company, his districts of responsibility were continually placed in the top 10 shrink results by posting below 1% each year. Prior to joining Toys R Us/Babies R Us, Gasse worked as a Security Investigator for Victoria’s Secret Stores and was the Regional Loss Prevention Representative for CVS Pharmacy.

“Garth’s prior work with issues, such as organized retail crime, combined with his wide range of experience in loss prevention within the retail sector make him a great fit for our organization,” said Kennedy. “Loss prevention is critically important to our members and we are delighted to expand the resources and expertise available to them in this area.”

Gasse officially joined RILA on January 2.

Thought Challenge Review


Sandy Chandler
The Fear of What I Don’t Know...

By Sandy Chandler, CPP, LPC
Regional Director, Asset Protection at Rite Aid Corp.

as published on July 17, 2012

As we all progress through our careers, one thing becomes clearly evident... we don’t know what we don’t know.

If we all knew everything, then we’d all be experts on everything, right? So the challenge or fear that I face is, “What do I not yet know?”

I try to stay current on technology, which is advancing at an exponential rate...

I also read trade journals, attend conferences when I can, read the D & D Daily, watch the new LP News Network videos, read the Loss Prevention Foundation’s newsletters and postings, read the Harvard Business Journal, all in hope of learning something new to help both myself and my team.

One thing I’ve discovered on this journey so far is that we all learn through our mistakes, both personal and professional. Learning through our mistakes makes us wiser, stronger, and more forward thinking. Where we truly gain value is when we take our egos out of the equation and truly analyze what we did right, what we did wrong, and what we could have done differently for a more positive outcome. Sometimes a mistake made is not necessarily a choice that was made, but possibly a choice not made because we’d neglected to gain needed knowledge. So, was it a mistake or just the lack of critical knowledge at that specific time, or both?

I have learned to embrace this concept as I grow. Making mistakes is no longer a fear of mine. The real opportunity is, “What do I still not know?”

How can you bridge this gap in knowledge and experience?

A potential answer... Surround yourself with knowledgeable people!

Choose mentors, peers, and friends that can inspire you to be your very best. These people can assist with discussing new ideas and solving difficult issues in a comfortable manner that elicits honest responses, sound advice, and valuable feedback.

Another thought... Knowledge is power! Sounds kind of corny, but really it’s so true!

I recently started teaching a college night class to stretch myself further. My students (working adults with families) challenge me to be a better educator and a better person. One way we learn is through thought-provoking dialogue and active listening. Being a committed sounding board is a crucial piece to this listening exercise!

There is no obvious answer to solving the dilemma of not knowing what you don’t know. But if we are constantly asking ourselves the right questions while seeking out useful knowledge, we hopefully move one step closer to discovering helpful answers and furthering our careers.

Just a thought...
