For those that are unfamiliar with CPTED, it involves designing the build environment to reduce the opportunity for, and fear of, crime and disorder. It’s an approach that has really been around since about the 1960’s.

Many building designers and security professionals apply this approach to remodeled and new buildings. I believe that the concepts of CPTED can be applied to any environment.

Don’t get me wrong, CPTED in its full out application can be quite an investment, and extremely effective in re-directing crime (remember we can’t stop crime, but we can redirect it). To the average home or small business owner, such an investment may not be available.

Small things can make a difference. Routinely view your property as other’s may from driving or walking past, or even from your neighbour’s yards (I suggest you’re on good terms before you do that). Don’t plant large shrubs or trees close to your property to shield or shadow an entry point, be diligent in maintaining your property.

Another easy and cost effective method of learning about CPTED and applying its principles; contact your local Police service or many of the security professionals who understand, practice, and implement this knowledge daily.
