 Ernest (Ernie) Long
Crime Prevention Coordinator, City of Aventura

Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is an approach to deterring crime through environmental design and creating a safer physical and built environment. This includes buildings, roads, parking lots, lighting, access control, maintenance, windows, entrances, signage, landscaping, sidewalks, and more. In the modern world, deterring crime and countering violent extremism requires a comprehensive approach. CPTED is about designing for safety and acts as a “force multiplier.” The presenters will explore simple strategies and examples to make campuses safer and more secure while considering budget.

This webinar is appropriate for a wide variety of disciplines including campus public safety officials, facilities and physical plant staff, student affairs personnel, builders, architects, project managers, codes personnel, and administrators.

Ed Book currently serves as the chief of police, college emergency management coordinator, and behavioral intervention team chair at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. He is an adjunct instructor in the organizational management program and teaches to public safety recruits. Ed retired from the Gainesville Police Department as the district commander and captain and has more than 32 years of experience as a law enforcement official.

Ernest (Ernie) Long is a career crime prevention specialist, first certified in 1983 while employed as a police officer in New Jersey. He served as a patrolman, detective, and sergeant, and after obtaining a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, he became an investigator for the state of New Jersey. Ernie currently serves as the treasurer of the Florida Design out Crime Association and crime prevention coordinator for the City of Aventura.
