DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is an element crafted to ensure a safe and secured neighbourhood is designed. CPTED generally serves as a direction module that outlines a summary of concepts and checklist that can be used as a guide during the designing, preparing and execution of the layout building or town plan and at the same time evaluating and validating the on-site project progress.
The elements of CPTED should be infused during the initial planning and designing of layout and at the initial stages of any kind development planning of a project. Several studies have proven that rapid urbanisation is one of the primary contributing causes for the increasing rate of the crime in such environment. Hence, safety and secured measure needs to be implemented in order to combat to such catastrophe. And that's what CPTED is all about.
CPTED is initiated based on the intention of wanting a detailed and effective design suitable for physical environment that can influence the ever-existing crime rate as well as increasing the quality of the current lifestyle and environment.
This informative class is intended for those who have already received an entry level CPTED training. From conception to renovation of older properties, the class will focus on CPTED principles and practical application of those principles within the community. Discussion topics will include how to make the intended user feel safer and what makes a criminal more likely to choose one location over another.
