Community pharmacist and NCPA member Toni Sumpter and Retired Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Virginia State Police Landon Gibbs, discuss preventing and dealing with internal theft and prescription fraud. They tour Sumpter's store, Medicap Pharmacy in Adel, Iowa, evaluating security measures and discussing additional steps that can be taken to prevent internal theft and how to identify fraudulent prescriptions. The goal is to help pharmacists make their stores a harder target for crime and educate them on how they can assist law enforcement in the event of an internal theft incident or prescription fraud.

"Pharmacy crime affects our customers, our staff, and our businesses," said NCPA President Donnie Calhoun, R.Ph. "As communities across the country experience internal theft and prescription fraud, NCPA is pleased to continue our Protect Your Pharmacy Now! partnership with Purdue's RxPATROL program to help our members prevent pharmacy crime."  

Created in May 2003, RxPATROL is the only program specifically tracking pharmacy crime. Using visual and other evidence gathered by RxPATROL, the web-based program issues alerts to pharmacies and law enforcement are alerted to crimes that have occurred in their area and trends in criminal activity.
