CPTED strategies are ideal for Law Enforcement Officers, Architects, City/Urban/Park Planners, City Managers, City Council Members, Landscape Architects, Security Consultants, Educators or anyone involved in designing neighborhoods, schools, downtowns, buildings, or revitalization efforts. It is an effective way of fighting crime and promoting business.

Cities and Counties throughout the country are adopting CPTED ordinances requiring site plan reviews with crime prevention in mind. Law enforcement officers who are specially trained in CPTED are now working closely with Planners, Architects, City Officials, and Educators to ensure the proper design of structures, schools, and neighborhoods. 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.

Instructor

Jamie Rae Walker, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor and Extension Specialist in the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences at Texas A&M University. She provides unbiased and relevant information to community practitioners, leaders, and citizens. Most of her work focuses on providing educational sessions, hands on trainings, and technical assistance for communities needing to conduct citizen input sessions, systematic survey and counting methodologies, and effective planning and prioritization processes for parks and related open spaces. Jamie Rae also provides information on park and programming trends that address relevant issues. She has presented over 200 educational sessions for agents, practitioners, communities, national conferences, state association conferences, and key note speeches. She has also facilitated over 150 citizen input and strategic planning sessions.

Jamie Rae has worked directly on funded projects with over thirty communities/groups to implement evidence planning processes (e.g., citizen input, systematic program and land use analysis, readiness, asset mapping, feasibility studies, etc.) to improve programming and infrastructure. Collectively, this has resulted in the development and installation of school and community trails; park enhancement projects such as lighting, park cleanup efforts, improved maintenance, and increased safety patrol; pop-up-play & placemaking/park activation; community built playgrounds; wayfinding, gateway, and trail signage enhancements; park master plan updates; and one assessment for park department national accreditation. These accomplishments have increased community economies, addressed resident retention and attraction issues, increased access to physical activity opportunities, and improved community health. They have been due in part to the over $3.5 million dollars acquired in funding with approximately $2.5 million going directly to urban and municipal park programs and applied research and planning efforts. In turn, Dr. Walker has authored or co-authored 6 peer-reviewed papers, 11 extension publications, and 37 technical reports from this work.

Jamie Rae is currently the PI for the Texas A&M Extension Working on Wellness Environments program funded by the CDC to support locally driven policy, system, and environmental change. She has previously contributed to CDC programs for seven years as a co-investigator and to USDA regional development programs as a co-PI for four years. She was a member of the USDA Stronger Economies Together curriculum development team. Jamie Rae is a Walk Audit trainer, Strategic Doing Facilitator, and is designated in CPTED. Her award highlights include: the 2018 National Association of Community Development Extension Professionals Excellence in Community Development programming award (regionally and nationally) for her work on CPTED and parks and open spaces, the 2015 Superior Service Team Award from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension for Working on Wellness Starr County, the 2015 NIFA Partnership Award for Multistate Efforts “Stronger Economies Together Team”, the 2012 Texas Recreation and Park Society Educator Outstanding Service Award, the 2008 Texas A&M University System Vice Chancellor Excellence Award in Graduate Student Teaching, and the 2006 National Recreation and Park Association Graduate Student of the Year.

Jamie Rae loves the opportunities she has been provided to link local experts and advocates to the educational resources and tools they need to empower change in their community spaces.
