Annotation: IMPROVING HOME SECURITY DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE, ACCORDING TO THIS SECOND OF A FOUR-PART FILM SERIES ON CRIME PREVENTION MEASURES FOR SENIOR CITIZENS.
Abstract: THE FILM OUTLINES INEXPENSIVE WAYS TO SECURE THE HOME, INCLUDING THE EPOXY TRICK, THE FISH EYE, AND THE 8-PENNY NAIL. IMPROVED SECURITY FOR DOOR LOCKS, SLIDING DOORS, AND OPEN AND LOUVERED WINDOWS IS ALSO DISCUSSED; VIEWERS ARE SHOWN HOW TO AVOID OPENING DOORS TO STRANGERS. THE FILM DISCUSSES ELEMENTS OF A NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAM IN WHICH NEIGHBORS ARE ENCOURAGED TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER, NOTICE SUCH SUSPICIOUS INCIDENTS AS STRANGERS WATCHING HOUSES FROM PARKED CARS, AND REPORT THESE INCIDENTS TO THE POLICE. THE FILM ALSO SUGGESTS WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A BREAK-IN AND EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND OF QUICK ACCESS TO TELEPHONES. FOR OTHER FILMS IN THE SERIES, SEE NCJ 67431-32 AND NCJ 67434-35. (AOP)
