Course Description

Flooplans abstractCrime 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. CPTED strategies aim to deter criminal activity, reduce victimization, and build a sense of community among community members so that individuals can maintain control of areas, reduce crime, and minimize fear of crime. 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.
