Abstract: EVERY EFFORT TO REDUCE CRIME AGAINST BUSINESS SHOULD BEGIN WITH A SECURITY SURVEY. THE FILM PROVIDES A STEP-BY-STEP ANALYSIS AND INSPECTION OF THE LINES OF DEFENSE AGAINST CRIME. EACH OF THESE LINES OF DEFENSE SHOWS HOW TARGET HARDENING IS USED TO DETER AND PREVENT POTENTIAL THIEVES FROM ENTERING BUSINESS STRUCTURES. SPECIAL AREAS WHERE CRIME IS A PROBLEM INCLUDE TOOL STORAGE AREAS AND SHIPPING AND RECEIVING AREAS. MANY SUGGESTIONS ARE PRESENTED TO INCREASE SECURITY FOR BUSINESSES: (1) PROTECT WINDOWS BY INSTALLING BARS OR GRILLS; (2) SECURE ACCESS TO THE ROOF; (3) LIGHT ALL OUTSIDE AREAS; (4) INSTALL BURGLAR-RESISTANT GLASS IN LARGE WINDOWS; (5) PROVIDE ADEQUATE DOOR LOCKS AND CHECK THAT THEY ARE SECURE; (6) INSTALL A GOOD ALARM SYSTEM; (7) MOVE ALL TRASH CONTAINERS AND VEHICLES FROM THE BUILDING TO PREVENT EMPLOYEE THEFT; AND (8) PROVIDE SOLID FENCING AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE AREA. COMMUNITY TEAMWORK IS SUGGESTED TO HELP REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF CRIME AGAINST BUSINESSES. THIS FILM PROVIDES HELPFUL INFORMATION TO INSURANCE AGENTS, SECURITY CONSULTANTS, ALARM COMPANIES, AND CRIME PREVENTION ORGANIZATIONS, SO THAT THEY CAN COOPERATE WITH BUSINESSES TO PROVIDE EFFECTIVE CRIME PREVENTION.
