Security is all about layers of protection. The more layers that are put in place the more secure you and your family will be. For example, if you lock your doors that is one layer, but not enough. A home security system which includes an alarm, security cameras and even signage are all additional layers of protection.
An axiom of the security professional is to “predict and prevent”. This means by having the foresight to visualize the possibilities of crime happening, how and why, will help that professional to prevent such a crime by putting the security layers in place.
Much of the security philosophy described here is meant to be proactive and deter or prevent a criminal from being successful. With that in mind, with the exception of high quality security cameras, security doesn’t often lend itself to catching the bad-guy after they have been successful in committing a crime.
Generally we leave the task of apprehending “evil doers” up to law enforcement officials who have a litany of procedures, processes, and tools meant to determine “who dunnit”.
