CPTED - Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
CPTED is a crime prevention strategy intended to design out the fear of, and opportunity for crime in the build environment by creating ‘defensible space’. Suitable for use in any setting CPTED draws upon three basic crime prevention strategies: ‘natural access control; natural surveillance; and, territorial reinforcement’.  CPTED has now evolved into a second generation crime prevention strategy with the introduction of four new strategies: ‘social cohesion; connectivity; community culture; and, threshold capacity’.  These new strategies address the needs of a 21st Century approach to crime prevention by focusing on the social and cultural dynamics of the community at large.

SCP – Situational Crime Prevention
Situational Crime Prevention presents a broader approach to crime prevention than other prevention strategies, as it targets the ‘Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Environmental, and Legal’ aspects of crime.  SCP therefore has many benefits over other crime prevention strategies.  The strength of ‘Situation Crime Prevention’ come from the fact that it’s use is not the sole domain of law enforcement; it is not reliant on the criminal justice system; and, it can be applied by anyone wishing to manage crime.  Most notably, it is suitable for use in addressing highly specific types of crime.  SCP draws upon five main approaches aimed at: ‘Increasing the effort; Increasing the risks; Reducing the rewards; Reducing provocation; and, Removing excuses’. These five main approaches are further supported by 25 opportunity reducing techniques.

Security Risk Assessments
World events and the concept of the ‘global village’ now dictate that Australian Businesses take a comprehensive enterprise-wide and global approach to managing their security risks.  A Security Risk Assessment provides the foundation upon which to build an effective and efficient corporate protective strategy. Mapping the security risk landscape through the use of the risk assessment process provides organisation with an intimate understanding of the dangers faced, placing them in a better position to make informed and defendable decisions regarding the selection of treatment options.

Security Reviews
Security surveys and reviews are effective tools to assess security bench marks and to identify limitations, deficiencies and vulnerabilities within the security program that can potentially lead to loss. In many instance these losses are indeed preventable. The early identification of these shortfalls allows remedial and corrective action to be taken before shortfalls are discovered and exploited by criminals and losses are suffered.

Security Plans
Effective Security Plans can help organisations to exercise influence over adverse events by removing uncertainty, resulting in consistent and predictable outcomes.  Advanced planning for adverse events ensures that well though out and prudent courses of action are implemented in emergencies, rather than relying on questionable decisions made on the fly and under pressure, when time is of the essence. Planning prevents poor performance and can assist in providing a partial, if not total defence in the event of litigation.

Security Management Outsourcing
Today ‘Security Management’ is recognised as a management discipline within its own right, supported by its own distinct ‘body of knowledge’. Organisations can ill afford to assign this important responsible to just anyone, so why not allow our tertiary qualified security professionals to manage your security risks. Outsourcing the management of your organisation’s security is a flexible and cost effective alternate to employing a fulltime security manager. With the potential to save you thousands of dollars, security management outsourcing allows you to concentrate on what you do best – your core business activities.
