|The CPTED for Houses of Worship is a three-day (24 hour) class specifically designed for individuals who have completed the Basic CPTED class or the 5-day CPTED for Schools class. CPTED for Houses of Worship will evaluate houses of worship and their surrounding properties utilizing Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) strategies. Participants will assess the relationship between the design and the use of space at houses of worship and how it affects criminal activity and human behavior. Students will evaluate the existing physical environment and apply CPTED strategies to reduce opportunities of crime and will meet the facility's risk management parameters. Course attendees will take part in on-site house of worship CPTED audits. Attendees should be aware that basic CPTED principles are the foundation of this training and will be reviewed as part of the course curriculum. For experienced CPTED attendees, the first day will be a review of those concepts with an emphasis on houses of worship. This class is recommended for house of worship security teams and safety personnel, architects, facility management, and law enforcement personnel.
