Mini-Quiz: Home Security

by Ron Kurtus (revised 20 March 2016)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How does a house robber make money off things stolen?

He sells them to a middle-man or "fence"

He places the goods on a "fence" where people buy them

He sells them back to the owner, known as "fencing"

2. What might a robber do if he saw a burglar alarm system sign in front of a house?

It depends which security agency the sign was for

Ignore the sign and rob the house

Go to a different house to rob

3. Why would you have a motion detector if the doors and windows had alarms?

Just in case the robber got past the first line of defense

To add to the monthly security fee

To detect when the door or window was opened

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Security. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Examine all the possibilities
