Introduction to Business and Industrial Security and Loss Control: A Primer for Business, Private Security, and Law Enforcement
This book presents a treatise on the topic of business and industrial security and loss control as it applies to the protection of assets and personnel. The material in this thoroughly revised and updated second edition will enable law enforcement officers, security/loss control personnel and business managers to view security/loss control needs from a broad perspective and thus devise security measures that will reflect a well-thought-out systems approach. The book contains a wide range of information, and is presented in terms that will be meaningful to readers that do not have formal training or experience in the field of security and loss control. The information is of a practical nature which, if applied in a variation that is consistent with specific needs, will tailor a program that will result in a well-understood balanced systems approach. Through further understanding, the effectiveness of police and security personnel is enhanced as they perform crime prevention duties and assist local businesses in upgrading security measures. Replete with numerous illustrations and tables, the author provides a security/loss control survey for businesses, plus an overview of security for both businesses and industries. Specialized chapters on executive protection, fire dynamics and hazardous materials, security cameras, loss control surveys, loss control manager participation, and managerial leadership are included. This book will help the officer fine-tune investigative techniques when a crime, such as a burglary, has been committed at a business.
