Course Description:
During the five-day (40-hour) course, participants focus on basic CPTED concepts of proper design and effective use of the physical environment to achieve a more productive use of space and a reduction in crime in Schools. School design is increasingly influenced by safety concerns. There is a direct relationship of the design and use of the environment, to human behavior and crime. Participants will analyze the impact of campus design on students and staff safety by reviewing school designs which include: parking, student drop-off, bus pick-up, signage, hallways, lockers, restrooms, lighting and more. In examining a school setting, participants will describe the benefits of incorporating CPTED strategies and principles. Upon completion, the participant will have a basic understanding of CPTED concepts and strategies as applied in schools.
