Abstract : This study focused on the use of exit surveys as a diagnostic security tool to gather data regarding susceptibility to theft. It sought to achieve four interrelated goals: (1) the creation of a process which can develop a full-scale security exit instrument, (2) the creation of a prototype theft exit survey instrument, (3) a test of the effectiveness of that instrument; and (4) a determination of the extent to which the instrument was subject to various forms of response distortion. The instrument developed proved highly effective in identifying location, procedures, actions, and events susceptible to theft. Separating personnel provided more critical responses than non-separating respondents. While the focus of the study is on theft, it is believed that the findings are generalizable for developing exit surveys to help protect people and classified information.
