Description

INFRAGARD EDUCATION SECTOR MEETING: “A LOOK AT PHYSICAL SPACE – THE REVITALIZATION PROCESS OF SANDY HOOK AND CRIME PREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN”

Session One: Registration from 8–8:30 a.m.; program from 8:30-11:00 a.m. A light continental breakfast will be served.

FEATURED SPEAKERS:

Julia McFadden, Associate Principal at Svigals + Partners, the architectural firm that led the Sandy Hook, Newtown community through the school design and rebuild process.

Roberto (Robert) Meza, Physical Security Program Manager, UC San Diego who is a subject matter expert in Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).

According to the National Institute of Crime Prevention “proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime and an improvement in the quality of life.” When looking at protecting our critical assets (children, employees, property), it is important to look beyond locks, alarms and security cameras.

Mr. Meza will provide basic strategies in CPTED, a multi-disciplinary approach to crime prevention. Building on Mr. Meza’s presentation, Ms. McFadden will illustrate how the community of Sandy Hook used a comprehensive strategy to implement CPTED principles. Svigals + Partners was selected as the architectural firm to lead the Newtown, Connecticut community through the revitalization process and the design of a school which addressed deep security concerns by placing the educational mission as the primary goal. Ms. McFadden will discuss the process taken by the firm and how the new Sandy Hook school design creates a safe and orderly environment that encourages learning.

Although this topic is primarily of interest to the Education Sector, it is also relevant to security professionals, critical infrastructure, executives, municipalities, law enforcement, first responders, and others.
