|Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)|
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a decade old project design concept with proven results in the housing industry. CPTED is a collaborative process that includes relevant stakeholders to a specific project; owners, architects, engineers, planning and land use boards, law enforcement officials, security professionals, and citizens, all working together to ensure that the built environment maximizes desired use of the property while simultaneously impeding potential undesirable use and opportunities for criminal activity.
