Reviews

"If you teach security management courses, criminal justice, or criminology classes this title will prove a useful and fact-filled book for you. The text doesn’t use statistics to explain away crime, it simply gives readers and researchers who are trying to verify certain factors a place to start. A major benefit to dedicated users of this text is the inclusion of a companion CD. This makes it easier to search, review, and print out the stats and tables."--Security Management
