Dissuasive signs are used as a preventive intervention to deter offenders from committing a criminal act. These signs can be considered as a warning of its objective to influence the receiver's behavior or serve as a reminder of some possible risk or hazard. However, there are no official regulations or standards for these kinds of dissuasive signs in relation to security systems. The purpose of this preliminary test is to identify what kind of messages can influence the risk perception of a group of Mexicans and Japanese participants. Two experiments were applied to determine the influence of messages and signal words on the risk perception for both groups. The results of the experiments revealed that both groups (Mexican and Japanese) agree that messages that mention a possible consequence of the criminal act and messages that mention real-time surveillance are considered riskier and the only signal word that has a positive influence on risk perception for both groups is “Warning.”
