A security inspection is the primary tool used in crime prevention to recognize, appraise and anticipate loss potential. It is often defined as the backbone of our local crime prevention efforts. In practice, it combines the security experience, training and education of the Cedar Hill P.A.C.T. officers and focuses it on a single element – the analysis of a physical facility. It is the tool by which a homeowner or business owner is informed of the specific areas of vulnerability and the steps that can be taken to reduce or minimize that vulnerability.
