Florida Design Out Crime Association Director-at-Large Ed Book and Treasurer Ernie Long discuss crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) in this webinar presentation. CPTED is an approach to deterring crime that creates a safer physical and built environment. This includes buildings, roads, parking lots, lighting, access control, maintenance, windows, entrances, signage, landscaping, sidewalks, and more. In the modern world, deterring crime and countering violent extremism requires a comprehensive approach. CPTED is about designing for safety and acts as a “force multiplier.” The presenters will explore simple strategies and examples to make campuses safer and more secure while considering budget.
This presentation is part of the National Center for Campus Public Safety’s free webinar series, Campus Public Safety Online. It is appropriate for a wide variety of disciplines including campus public safety officials, facilities and physical plant staff, student affairs personnel, builders, architects, project managers, codes personnel, and administrators.
