Crime prevention measures are only effective if they are targeted correctly and are based on evidence; here organisations need to demonstrate that they have done this. There should be crime prevention and security measures in place that are appropriate to the organisation based on an analysis of the risks. The designated person should be able to explain why the measures have been chosen and how they address the problems experienced.
Employees should be able to explain their role in creating and maintaining a safe and secure environment. All staff should also be able to provide examples of ways in which the organisation has improved in its response to and management of security.
