Looks at various ways in which properties can be made more secure. Using a little thought and planning can make it more difficult for people to enter the property, and more time‐consuming for intruders to exit. Looks at ways in which the layout of stores can be more of a deterrent to would‐be perpetrators, reducing opportunities for casual opportunists to take advantage and posing more problems for the determined offenders.
