Abstract: THE BENEFITS OF INVOLVING CRIME PREVENTION OFFICERS AND LOSS CONTROL ENGINEERS IN BUSINESS SECURITY PLANNING ARE DEMONSTRATED, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPORTIVE EMPLOYEE AND MANAGEMENT ATTITUDES IS ALSO EMPHASIZED. PRACTICAL, TESTED COST-EFFECTIVE METHODS FOR PREVENTING A WIDE VARIETY OF EXTERNALLY PERPETRATED THEFTS ARE SHOWN, INCLUDING THE NEED FOR ADEQUATE LOCKS ON DOORS AND WINDOWS, GOOD FENCES, KEY CONTROL, ALARM SYSTEMS, AND SEVERAL METHODS OF ACCESS CONTROL. THE USE OF COMMON SENSE AND AWARENESS ON THE PART OF ALL EMPLOYEES IS STRESSED TO PREVENT THE ENTRY OF THIEVES. BUSINESSES MUST HAVE A PLAN TO IDENTIFY AND SECURE ALL PROBLEM AREAS. SECURITY TRAINING FOR KEY PERSONNEL WILL ENSURE GREATER ALERTNESS AND CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT OF SAFEGUARDS. THIS FILM SHOWS THAT POLICE CRIME PREVENTION OFFICERS ARE PREPARED TO HELP BUSINESSES FIND THEIR EXTERNAL WEAKNESSES AND INSTITUTE A PROGRAM DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THEIR SECURITY NEEDS.
