Course Description

Officer with cameraCrime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach of crime prevention that utilizes urban and architectural design in conjunction with the management of man-made and natural environments.

This course will enable participants to apply these principles and concepts through daily application to concept implementation of preparing a home or business security surveys.
