ASIS Report Examines Commercial Burglary Prevention

ASIS International : 14 January, 2010  (New Product)
Detailed CRISP report available from ASIS International which explores commercial burglaries and provides the context for assessing methods for preventing them from happening in the workplace
Burglary accounts for a significant component of all crime. Its effects can range from irritating to devastating, both personally and financially. Despite evidence that burglary rates declined in many countries in the past decade, the prevalence of burglary remains high, and in any one year burglary can affect as many as one-third of non-residential premises in many jurisdictions. That's according to the latest CRISP Report issued by the ASIS Foundation.


"Preventing Burglary in Commercial and Institutional Settings: A Place Management and Partnerships Approach," written by Tim Prenzler, PhD looks at how to assess, manage and respond to burglaries that occur at commercial and industrial sites. While there is a considerable amount written about domestic burglary, research is less in evidence when the locale is non-residential.

"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."

"Research shows that large reductions can be achieved in burglary incidents and losses through interventions that are often simple and cost-effective," Prenzler finds. Nevertheless, he says, a large portion of the owners and managers of facilities are reluctant to invest in security. The report finds that burglary prevention should be integrated within a wider "place management" approach to facilities management.

"Those charged with preventing burglary at commercial and institutional settings now have a source of information which connects research to practice to guide them in their prevention strategies," Gill says.

Tim Prenzler, PhD is 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, Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.
