  • Crime prevention strategies including neighborhood watch programs and community policing.
  • Asset protection strategies for different types of properties.
  • A variety of security measures including access control systems, intrusion alarms, CCTV monitoring, and use of security officers.

Spotlight on Security, in its second edition, includes new chapters that cover the relationship between security and fire protection, security in the mailroom, protecting computers and data from viruses and hackers, destruction of confidential documents and records, and security at construction sites. New appendices are also featured.
