Loss Prevention Division

Crime is costly and demoralizing problem affecting all of us. Crime prevention is an elegantly simple and direct approach to protect the potential victim from criminal attack by anticipating the possibility of attack and eliminating or reducing the opportunity for it to occur and the possibility for personal harm or property loss should occur. HOW CRIME PREVENTION WORKS – OPPERTUNITRY REDUCTION! - Three ingredients must be present for a crime to be committed:

  1. Desire or motivation on the part of the criminal
  2. The skills and tools needed to commit the crime; and
  3. Opportunity

Crime prevention aims to reduce criminal opportunity rather than to attack either criminal desire or criminal skills. The reason for this emphasis is that reduction of opportunity (by making a potential target of attack inaccessible or unattractive and by making the attack itself dangerous or unprofitable to the criminal) is a particle approach that has proven its value!
