Higher Ed hosts Business Luncheon with speakers on shoplifting and employee theft

Chief Deputy Leif Lunde and Sheriff's Deputy Pat Eliasen will speak about shoplifting and employee theft at this month’s Business Networking Luncheon Jan. 29 at 11:30 a.m. at the Higher Education campus in Grand Marais.

Eliasen and Lunde are running for Cook County sheriff this fall. This presentation is a great opportunity to get to know the candidates better as they present their perspectives on how to help prevent/reduce shoplifting and employee theft as well as react to known or suspected theft.

Did you know that more than $13 billion worth of goods are stolen from retailers each year? That's more than $35 million per day.

There is a $15 fee for the catered lunch provided by Harbor House Grille which includes soup and sandwich, pickle and dessert.

Cook County Higher Education’s Business Networking Luncheons are made possible thanks to the support of the Cook County Chamber of Commerce, Sivertson Gallery, Lake Superior Trading Post, and the Grand Marais State Bank.
