ANNOUNCING COMMUNITY CPTED CLASS
September 12 & 25, 2012
Join the Lakewood Police Department as we educate business and community members in Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). CPTED principles have been proven to help prevent crime, and using the techniques taught in this class, we hope bring an awareness and understanding of CPTED.
“Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design” (CPTED) is a strategy used by architects, city planners, law enforcement and others, using the physical environment to reduce the incidence and fear of crime, including graffiti.
Use of fences, signs, landscaping and good maintenance to convey ownership of the property.
Natural Surveillance Purposeful placement of physical features and activities that allow people to maximize their ability to see what is happening around them.
Activity Support Positive and legitimate activities are encouraged in public spaces, thereby discouraging criminal activity.
Access Control Proper placement of entrances, exits, fencing, landscaping and lighting to discourage criminal activity.
The Lakewood Police Department offers security (CPTED) surveys to residents and businesses. To schedule a security survey of your property, please contact our volunteer coordinator.
