     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at Southeastern Louisiana University will offer a seminar on the essentials of business loss prevention on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to noon.
     Sponsored by the Hammond Chamber of Commerce and the LSBDC, the free seminar will be held at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center, 1514 Martens Drive in Hammond.
Sandy Summers, assistant director of the Southeastern SBDC, said participants will learn about the possibilities for theft in a small business enviroment.
     “If major retailers can be hit by employee theft, business fraud and embezzlement despite their business security measures, theft becomes a very real risk small businesses need to consider,” she said. “Topics to be covered include retail theft, employee theft, robberies, identity theft and intellectual property theft, data theft and protection, and much more.”
     Summers said speakers include Detectives Edwin and George Bergeron of the Hammond Police Department, Ginger Cangelosi of LSBDC Southeastern, and Aaron Colona of RAM Computing Services.
     Pre-registration is required since space is limited. For more information, contact LSBDC Southeastern at, (985) 549-3831. Online registration is also available at
