Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is defined as a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behaviour through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts by affecting the built, social and administrative environment. It is pronounced sep-ted and is known by various labels or names around the world, such as Designing Out Crime and other acronyms.
Mark your calendars for the 2017 ICA International Conference: August 6-8 2017! Our theme this year is:
My street, my neighbourhood, my city - CPTED in action
The Conference will be held at the Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Aspects that will be addressed include the role of various role players (community groups, local government, the police etc.) in implementing CPTED, reducing crime through the planning, design and management of the environment, CPTED strategies to create safe and resilient cities, CPTED and public transport, CPTED and homelessness and CPTED in educational institutions.
