Overview

Way ahead of its time, in this classic text the authors convincingly introduce social science theory and methods to the field of private security. While they deal with the various approaches to private security including management styles and adaptations of regular policing styles, the significant innovation is the introduction of situational crime prevention -- at the time virtually unknown in the private policing field -- as a major tool of private security. Situational crime prevention today is widely used to solve a broad range of crime problems from car theft to terrorism, so remains even more relevant to private security than ever before. If you work in the private security or private policing field, indeed even regular public policing, this is a must read. Chapters: Acknowledgements.
