From the Back Cover:

Mindful of the lodging industry's highly competitive nature and its need to be profitable, Hotel and Motel Loss Prevention: A Management Perspective offers both current and future general managers a number of practical, cost-effective ways to prevent and minimize losses. It covers more than protecting guests against crimes. It shows how effective security / loss prevention measures help protect assets, including reputation, against other forms of loss.

Topics include:

  • An analysis of physical security's importance in relation to loss prevention, especially when new construction or major alterations are being considered
  • The integration of security into all aspects of hotel and motel operations to help prevent losses even when employing security personnel cannot be justified.
  • A discussion of the impact of meaningful loss prevention programs on law-related issues, litigation included, and
  • A look at loss prevention in connection with international operations.
