Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention based on Situation for an Organization

Lets say you have a motivated offender.

There are possible controls that can be imposed such as

  1. Plan accessibility rules and Deny access to sensitive areas ,
  2. Warn of punishment for illegal behavior by putting more signage and etc ,
  3. prosecute apprehended offenders or else ….

there are other crime prevention techniques perhaps reduces the available assets at you building or areas,

make the crime prone areas to be less attractive to the thieves

and you can alter the behavior of the potential victims so they are less likely to be victimized. E.g…..

There are Public train station connected to private buildings, for such cases a study should be conducted to alter the behavioral pattern of people in the private building…

such as by allowing executives attires only, no smoking or vaping areas, no waiting areas, remove bench that you know will ended in one or two people sitting at a snatch thief prone area, put a signage no loitering area and many more.

make vulnerable assets impossible for thieves to benefit e.g  installs lock for mini statues, place designers vase at the more traffic area, lock small kiosk, install CCTV at vending machines, lock the soap dispenser in public toilets, Barrier the access to the power switch gear area and many more….

or increase control by assign security officers to protect the location or increase the number of security personnel.

install and upgrade a security system such as CCTV, Access control system, One way door lock system and turnstile to limit the entry of people.

Organization can get more awareness  or to educate the non-security employees and others to participate willingly in loss prevention strategies. We have consulted many organization and found this to be very effective and cost saving compare to hiring security guards for a small purpose.
