CRISP Report on Preventing Burglary in Commercial and Institutional Settings Released

 
CRISP Report on Preventing Burglary in Commercial and Institutional Settings Released

According to the latest CRISP Report issued by the ASIS Foundation, burglary accounts for a significant component of all crime, and despite evidence that burglary rates declined in many countries in the past decade, the prevalence of burglary remains high – in any 1 year, burglary can affect as many as one-third of non-residential premises in many jurisdictions.

“Preventing Burglary in Commercial and Institutional Settings: A Place Management and Partnerships Approach” looks at how to assess, manage, and respond to burglaries that occur at commercial and industrial sites. The report was written by Tim Prenzler, a chief investigator in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security, and a professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia.

“This CRISP Report looks at the context in which burglaries occur, and includes a consideration of the burglar’s approach,” says Martin Gill, chair of the ASIS Research Council. “Dr. Prenzler examines a range of solutions, which aim to make it more difficult for would-be offenders, particularly in the workplace, and he shows where security managers can have an impact.”

Prenzler’s report finds that research shows that large reductions can be achieved in burglary incidents and losses through interventions that are often simple and cost-effective, but a large portion of facilities owners and managers are reluctant to invest in security. According to Prenzler, burglary prevention should be integrated within a wider “place management” approach to facilities management.
