The Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail (CLEAR) is a non-profit 501(c)(3), non-partisan national association founded in November 2008 by a group of Law Enforcement and Retail Loss Prevention professionals that saw the need for the formation of a partnership. The Coalition provides a forum for public and private sector members, with experience in a wide variety of public safety initiatives, to aid and support the establishment of collaborative efforts that are focused on improving the safety of our communities and advancing the profession of its membership.

CLEAR's Board of Directors recognizes that there are many challenges to establishing collaborative efforts that support the safety of our communities. CLEAR, through public-private partnership arrangements, provides diverse training and education programs, offering timely, relevant information and insights to our Members and training participants as well as providing vital core resources for creating and furthering partnerships nationwide. Training and education events are focused on delivering the most productive and cost-effective training and development opportunities, providing unmatched content that contributes to both the success of our members and the continued success of the organization’s for which they represent.

CLEAR's mission is to build and support public-private sector partnerships focused on improving the safety of our communities. We accomplish this mission through supporting collaborative training and education events, open communication and networking opportunities. By working and training together, our Members create a tenor in which all understand they are stakeholders, who are aware and vested in the security and protection of our communities.
