Course Description:
During the five-day (40-hour) Basic Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) 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. Students learn architectural and planning terms and definitions, techniques used to analyze the potential for crime, how to identify relationships and conflicts that exist between crime and the environment, and the application of CPTED strategies in neighborhoods, schools and other sites. Emphasis is placed on documented case studies and specific CPTED applications in commercial, transportation, and public housing settings. Participants are instructed in how to read construction blueprints and schematic diagrams; how to communicate with planning, engineering, and construction personnel; and in making recommendations to city, county and state agencies.
