SafeGrowth is a new model for building crime-resistant and vibrant neighborhoods in the 21st Century. This book chronicles how SafeGrowth and methods like CPTED - Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design - turn troubled places back from the brink of crime. This book compiles the results of recent SafeGrowth conferences and project work in high crime neighborhoods and it describes a new theory in city planning and crime prevention. The book includes chapters on urban planning, community development, crime prevention, and new policing strategies. Chapter authors include criminologists, community workers, urban planners, police specialists, and others directly involved in community work and urban design. Chapters also include summaries of recent SafeGrowth Summits, planning and visioning sessions for creating a new path forward.
Chapters include: Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design; Smart Growth planning; livability academies; urban villages and the hub concept; SafeGrowth projects in Saskatoon and Red Deer in Canada and Hollygrove in New Orleans; and the 4 principles of SafeGrowth planning. While the original concept of SafeGrowth was developed by Gregory Saville, the book editor and primary author, other authors expand that original vision and describe a new way to plan and develop cities. The audience for this book includes community development practitioners, urban policy-makers, crime prevention specialists including police, students of urban development and crime prevention, planners, and anyone interested in a new way to create safer and livable neighborhoods.

Ray Jeffery coined the term in the early 1970s, and Tim Crowe wrote the first CPTED applications book. The second edition of 21st Century Security and CPTED includes the latest theory, knowledge, and practice of CPTED as it relates to the current security threats facing the modern world: theft, violent crime, terrorism, gang activity, and school and workplace violence.
