Critically examine what the security manager can do to prevent white collar crime
White collar crime can vary in its definitions; ensure that you critically consider this in this essay. It is ok to concentrate on one or two types of white collar crime or to relate this question to a particular type of organisation in order to give some focus to the essay. This question requires an appraised discussion on white collar crime and an examination of preventative measures, which will require consideration of both theoretical perspectives and their application in terms of crime prevention.
Please make clear the point being made in each paragraph and how this relates to answering the question. Try to focus on a specific type of white collar crime and 3 or 4 preventative measures for better structure and to aID sufficient depth. The essay should be academic in nature and critically aIDress the issue not just superficially. Avoid use of unnecessary headings, but ensure definitive structure.
The essay is to have a clearly defined introduction, main body and conclusion. No need for subtitles. The essay should be VERY ANALYTICAL rather than descriptive, e.g by considering the strengths and weaknesses of the preventative measures available to a security manager, whilst relating it to the relevant theoretical perspectives.
