“The proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime, and to an improvement in quality of life.”

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. How natural access control and natural surveillance decrease the opportunity for crime.
