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.
