Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) promotes a sense of safety and diminishes the incidence of crime in any given environment.
What is CPTED?
- CPTED (pronounced SEP-ted) is an acronym for Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.
- CPTED is based on the theory that the proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the incidence and fear of crime and in an improvement in the quality of life.
- CPTED consists of four key concepts: Natural Surveillance, Natural Access Control, Territorial Reinforcement and Maintenance, all of which are interrelated.
When you schedule a Security Audit of your property, our specially trained officers and crime prevention specialists apply many CPTED concepts to your audit.
Listen to your inner voice. If you do not feel safe, your voice is probably right!
