Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is based on the principle that proper design and effective use of buildings and public spaces in neighborhoods can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime, and an improvement in the quality of life. CPTED’s goal is to prevent crime through designing a physical environment that positively influences human behavior.  It is based on four principles: natural access control, natural surveillance, territoriality, and maintenance. Participants will learn the basics of CPTED principles and how they work; apply successful applications and techniques of CPTED to specific crimes; consider CPTED principles in plans to secure key public places, schools, and facilities; and conduct a community safety assessment using CPTED principles.  For the School CPTED focused training day, participants will discuss strategies and solutions to promote safety, orderly behavior, and a reduction of fear in the school environment.
