Annotation: THIS MANUAL PROVIDES GUIDANCE TO EXECUTIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES ON PERSONAL AND PROPERTY PROTECTION FROM SPECIFIC CRIMINAL THREATS.
Abstract: THE THREATS CONSIDERED ARE TERRORISM, BOMBS AND BOMB THREATS, BURGLARY AND THEFT, STRIKES AND LABOR DISTURBANCES, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND DISORDER, AND KIDNAPPING. FOLLOWING A DISCUSSION OF THE GENERAL STRATEGIES OF TERRORIST GROUPS, LIKELY TARGETS FOR TERRORIST ATTACK ARE IDENTIFIED. SPECIAL SECTIONS ARE DEVOTED TO FUNDAMENTAL SECURITY, PLANNING, PROTECTION HARDWARE FOR OFFICE AND PLANT, INTRUSION DETECTION, FENCES, AND DOGS. TOPICS DISCUSSED UNDER BOMBS AND BOMB THREATS INCLUDE THE TYPES OF BOMBS, PREVENTION, PROCEDURES IN THE EVENT OF A BOMB THREAT, RECEIVING A THREAT, BOMB SEARCH PROCEDURES, FINDING A BOMB, AND WHAT TO DO SHOULD AN EXPLOSION OCCUR. EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL MEANS OF PREVENTING BURGLARY AND THEFT IN A BUSINESS FACILITY ARE DESCRIBED. CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES THAT MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH STRIKES AND LABOR DISTURBANCES ARE IDENTIFIED, AND PROCEDURES FOR DEALING WITH PARTICULAR THREATS ARE DESCRIBED. CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND DISORDER WHICH CAN RESULT IN EXTENSIVE INJURY, DAMAGE AND LOOTING ARE ALSO CONSIDERED AS THREATS TO BUSINESSES. GOOD RELATIONS WITH THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY ARE ADVISED TO REDUCE THE LIKELIHOOD OF A BUSINESS BECOMING A TARGET OF CIVIL DISORDER. A POLICY FOR PROPERTY PROTECTION IS SUGGESTED, AND WAYS OF ENSURING EMPLOYEE SAFETY IN THE EVENT OF A DISTURBANCE ARE DESCRIBED. DETERMINING IF A KIDNAPPING IS A HOAX, HOSTAGE CONDUCT, AND THE ROLE OF THE POLICE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF A KIDNAP CASE ARE CONSIDERED. HOME AND FAMILY PROTECTION AND SECURITY PRECAUTIONS DURING BUSINESS AND PERSONAL TRAVEL ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. AT THE END OF EACH CHAPTER, A CHECKLIST OF PROCEDURES IS PROVIDED FOR SECURITY UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES DISCUSSED. (RCB)
