Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
Instructor: Brian Kanicki
This 3 day class is based on the premise that “the proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear of crime and incidence of crime, and to an improvement in quality of life.” CPTED examines the “why here” factor. This course is beneficial to a wide range of professions ranging from law enforcement professionals to security consultants, to municipal managers, planners and code/zoning enforcement, and even schools officials, property managers, shopping districts and downtown development authorities. Concepts learned can be applied to provide useful risk assessments and security surveys of existing properties as well as the development of new projects. Attendees will learn about how lighting, landscaping, access control, signage, and the use of social activities can help in preventing crime, as well as how to utilize CPTED in existing crime prevention and community policing programs.
