Todays seminar focused on teaching business owners and managers how to prevent crime at their locations of business.
The four hour presentation included tips about keeping sight lines from buildings clear, making buildings easy to navigate, and having obvious pathways into and out of the main entrances of the building.
Class teacher chris jones says the most important tip he teaches is making sure all employees are 100% clear on the businesses emergency procedures.
Number one is that they want to make sure they have an emergency action plan, the policies and procedures that tell people what to do when emergencies arise.
As well as conducting security and vulnerability assesments of their facilities and updating those at least annualy, preferably biannually or quarterly.
