Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) theories contend that law enforcement officers, architects, city planners, landscape and interior designers, and resident volunteers can create a climate of safety in a community right from the start. CPTED's goal is to prevent crime through designing a physical environment that positively influences human behavior. It is based on four principles: natural access control, natural surveillance, territoriality, and maintenance. The National Crime Prevention Council's course helps participants put the theories behind CPTED into action for their communities by designing a hands-on, interactive two or three day basic or advanced training specifically tailored to your community's needs.
