Code EnforcementSAP302Crime Prevention through Environmental Design
TEEX is now offering a 40-hour Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) practitioners’ course, that is accredited by the International CPTED Association (ICA). CPTED is a multi-disciplinary approach of crime prevention that utilizes urban planning, and architectural design in conjunction with the management of man-made and natural environments, that supports better use of the built environment, community engagement, and improve the quality of life in your community. CPTED strategies aim to deter opportunistic criminal activity, reduce victimization, and build a sense of community so that individuals can maintain control over, and promote legitimate use of spaces, reduce crime, and minimize the fear of crime. This course will enable participants to apply these strategies and principles to creating safer and sustainable communities. The goal of this comprehensive training is to give the attendees the skills to review plans and drawings, analyze the threats and problems, get collaborative input by key resource persons, and develop strategies that create safer environments, and improve the quality of life. CPTED is used to alter and expand the participant’s perception of the immediate physical and social environment. By altering the perception of the physical environment, the participant will be more capable of understanding the direct relationship of the environment to human behavior, and to crime. An understanding of the design, management, and effective use of the built environment is the first step to increasing the probability of success of the community’s efforts in reducing crime and incivilities. This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for TEEX Crime Prevention through Environmental Design course #78056. The course is accredited under the ICA’s Course Accreditation Program (CAP) – Class A.
