DESIGN CRIME PREVENTION MODEL (MPD) 20.393 LAWDesign Crime Prevention Model (MPD)
The company, its board, managers and senior executives may keep clear of the penalty imposed by this 20.393 law discharging their managerial and supervisory duties. This involves the implementation of a crime prevention model with the following elements:
a) Individual Responsible for Prevention.
b) Resources and duties of the above individual.
c) A crime prevention system with internal obligations, prohibitions and penalties.
d) Supervision and certification of the crime prevention system.
Although the implementation of a crime prevention model is not mandatory, its inexistence may expose the company to severe contingencies upon the commission of one of the above crimes, because the company may not be able to demonstrate compliance with its management and supervision functions.
All things considered, the new law demands that organizations define their exposure to the same with a review of its operations, processes, business areas, and the regulatory framework that they work in and the parties that they interact with, in order to determine the risk of not adopting the measures, procedures and manuals needed to create a Crime Prevention Model to establish the company's exemption from liability and the severe penalties set forth by the same, and to meet their board members' and managers' good management obligations.
