Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach of crime prevention that uses urban and architectural design and the management of built and natural environments. CPTED strategies aim to reduce victimization, deter offender decisions that precede criminal acts, and build a sense of community among inhabitants so they can gain territorial control of areas, reduce crime, and minimize fear of crime. CPTED is known around the world as the international standard of crime prevention.
Another part of the crime prevention process is a Threat and Vulnerability Assessment (TVA). A TVA will highlight areas of vulnerability/risk in an established property or one that is yet to be constructed. The vulnerable areas will be addressed with proven mitigation practices to reduce opportunities for crime and ultimately liability on the property owner/developer.
Finally, a detailed crime analysis including population, income, demographics and crime statistics is completed to establish a trend and determine future predictions. This will provide a comprehensive historical perspective and give insight on future growth and crime trends.
Implementation of these three strategies will provide clients with a greater understanding of the current crime and area trends and predict future trends. This process will assist clients in community engagement as well as working with municipalities in zoning and permits. Finally, this process will result in showing a commitment to a safer way of doing business.
Trust your TVA to a professional who is certified and has the experience to offer the best level of service.
