ABSTRACT

Crime Prevention through Environmental Design and Community Policing   [open pdf - 37KB]

"Crime prevention today benefits from two strategies for protecting neighborhoods from crime and the fear of crime--Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and community policing. CPTED programs, through design and management of the physical environment of buildings, residential neighborhoods, and business areas, increase public safety and reduce fear of crime. Community policing programs, by making police more visible and familiar to the people and with the physical environment of their beats, reinforce these efforts and promote police citizen partnerships to prevent crime and disorder. This Research in Action suggests several ways in which CPTED and community policing initiatives can be coordinated and integrated in a comprehensive approach to community security."
