    About three thousand people attended an international security conference in Washington this week (4-5 October).

    SYNOPSIS: A security conference in Washington this week attracted three thousand delegates from throughout the United States and from many other countries.

    A display of the latest security devices included electronic aids in police work.

    A floor alarm set off by a burglars footsteps, automatic television scanners and unbreakable glass were among the equipment that manufactures hoped to sell to security conscious businessmen and householders.

    This paper shredder keeps unwanted secret documents safe from industrial spies.

    One company has developed a low velocity "stun gun" which will knock out a fugitive, but won't break glass.

    Delegates to the Washington conference represented police authorities, manufacturers, and businessmen concerned at the ???ising rate of thefts from shops and warehouses.

    As crime increases in most countries, security is becoming big business. One American estimate puts world sales of security equipment at thirty thousand million US dollars by the end of this decade.
