Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

Defined as “the proper design and effective use of the built environment that can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime and an improvement in the quality of life.”

Guides and Resources we like

We have looked over a number of materials on CPTED concepts and select these publications from various agencies for you.  We find them to be of good quality and worth your time and attention as you consider your own property.   

Large format poster for casual reference and discussion around the four main concepts of CPTED.

A two-page flyer for owners with terms defined and a few photos from the slides to help recall the ideas for follow-up.

CPTED Slide Deck and Talk

At the left is a relaxed, half-hour slideshow and talk that will orient you to the bedrock concepts of CPTED.  We think you will find it useful and informative for your own considerations.

Next Steps

How are you seeing unintended use of your property?  When people express concerns, around what areas of your property are they typically centered?  If this material has you thinking about next steps and what you can do around your Carmichael property, we can help.  We invite you to reach out to District managment to take advantage of a no-cost consultation at your property as to CPTED best practice.
