Annotation: PART OF THE PROFESSIONAL PROCEDURES PROGRAM SERIES, THIS SPEAKER'S KIT CONTAINS ALL NECESSARY COMPONENTS FOR PRESENTING A TALK ON BURGLARY PREVENTION.
Abstract: BURGLARY IS INCREASING AT AN ALARMING RATE. IN ORDER TO PREVENT AND DETER BURGLARY, THE PUBLIC MUST BE INFORMED ABOUT METHODS OF SELF-PROTECTION (PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES) AND ABOUT INEXPENSIVE SAFEGUARDS AVAILABLE TO PROTECT HOMES, APARTMENTS, AND PERSONS. (THEFTS FROM BUSINESSES ARE NOT COVERED IN THE PRESENTATION.) CITIZENS CAN DO MUCH TO PREVENT BEING VICTIMIZED BY BURGLARS. THEY CAN USE PHYSICAL PREVENTION MEASURES SUCH AS INSTALLING STRONG OUTSIDE DOORS ON THEIR DWELLINGS, CHECKING THE STRENGTH OF DOOR HINGES AND INSTALLING HINGE-PIN PROTECTORS, PUTTING EITHER DEADBOLT OR DEADFALL LOCKS ON ALL EXTERIOR DOORS, USING THE LOCKS EVERY TIME OCCUPANTS LEAVE THE HOUSE, AND KEEPING TRACK OF ALL KEYS. THEY CAN ALSO TAKE PREVENTIVE MEASURES CONCERNING WINDOWS, LIGHTING, MAIL AND OTHER HOME DELIVERIES, VALUABLES, AND HANDLING STRANGERS. ALL OF THESE SECURITY MEASURES WILL HELP PREVENT CITIZENS FROM BEING VICTIMIZED. THE KIT INCLUDES SLIDES, ACCOMPANYING TAPE LECTURE, STUDY NOTES, QUIZ QUESTIONS, THE SPEAKER'S GUIDE, AND A BURGLARY PREVENTION CHECKLIST SUITABLE FOR REPRODUCTION. (PRG)
