Annotation: THIS FILM SHOWS BUSINESS MANAGEMENT WHAT CAN BE DONE TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BUSINESS LOSSES DUE TO CRIME.
Abstract: THE FILM EXPLAINS HOW PREVENTIVE PRIORITIES AND CAPABILITIES CAN BE REALIZED SO THAT BUSINESSES CAN DEAL WITH CRIME PREVENTION IN A COST-EFFECTIVE MANNER. A TYPICAL BUSINESS IS DESCRIBED ILLUSTRATING RECOMMENDED LOSS-REDUCING TECHNIQUES. VARIOUS ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF CRIME PREVENTION ARE OUTLINED AND EVALUATED IN TERMS OF THEIR PREVENTIVE AND COST-EFFECTIVE CHARACTERISTICS. RISK AVOIDANCE, ABATEMENT, SPREADING, TRANSFER, AND ASSUMPTION ARE ALL EXPLAINED, AND DESCRIPTIONS ARE PROVIDED OF HOW THEY REDUCE CRIME. TO EVALUATE BUSINESS RISK EXPOSURE, BUSINESSMEN CAN USE THE RESULTS OF A SECURITY SURVEY PREPARED BY THEIR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT TO IMPLEMENT NEW COST-EFFECTIVE SECURITY MEASURES DESIGNED TO PROTECT THEIR BUSINESS FROM BOTH INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL CRIME. MANAGERS MUST UTILIZE THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF LOSS PREVENTION TO SELECT THE TECHNIQUE OR TECHNIQUES MOST ADVANTAGEOUS FOR THEIR BUSINESS.
