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.
