About this Event

Cities and Counties throughout the country are adopting CPTED ordinances requiring site plan reviews with crime prevention in mind.

Participants will learn how the design and use of the environment can control human / criminal behavior and reduce the fear of crime. They will learn crime prevention through natural means. How natural access control and natural surveillance decrease the opportunity for crime. Participants will learn the different aspects of lighting and its effects on human behavior. Participants will work together on a site survey and provide a group presentation of their results utilizing CPTED strategies. They will learn the advantages of having a CPTED ordinance and how to construct and present it to lawmakers.
