Crime Prevention is a Collaborative Effort

Are you responsible for security in facility construction and community revitalization projects?

Do you work with architects, community planners or businesses on security and crime prevention initiatives?

Are you seeking skills to advance your career in security or law enforcement?

Crime can be directly influenced by the design of the physical environment.

Effective security is complex. Reliance exclusively on technical solutions can leave facilities and occupants vulnerable, inhibit business and impede aesthetics.

All stakeholders responsible for facility design and construction, community and campus planning, security and loss prevention should work together to develop comprehensive security strategies, including those that manipulate behavior to reduce crime.

  • Law Enforcement Personnel
  • Business Owners
  • Architects
  • Community Planners
  • Internal Security and
    Loss Prevention Professionals
  • Security Consultants
  • Security Solutions Providers

The proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction of fear and incidences of crime, and an improvement in the quality of life. 

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a set of design strategies intended to passively discourage inappropriate behavior and criminal activity. CPTED concepts should be incorporated into every new construction, renovation and community revitalization project.
