Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) in Schools – August 2016
August 10, 2016 @ 8:00 am - August 12, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
I will be instructing a 3-day CPTED in Schools class at the Polk State College – Center for Public Safety Kenneth C. Thompson Institute of Public Safety.
This course is designed for participants to focus on basic Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) concepts of proper design and effective use of the physical environment to achieve a more productive use of space and a reduction in crime. Students learn architectural and planning terms and definitions, techniques used to analyze the potential for crime, how to identify relationships and conflicts that exist between crime and the environment, and the application of CPTED strategies in neighborhoods, schools and other sites.
Emphasis is placed on documented case studies and specific CPTED applications in commercial, transportation, and public housing settings. Participants are instructed in how to read construction blueprints and schematic diagrams; how to communicate with planning, engineering, and construction personnel; and in making recommendations to city, county and state agencies.
