International CPTED Association

The ICA supports local organizations, practitioners and communities that utilise CPTED principals to create safer communities and environments.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is defined as a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts by affecting the built, social and administrative environment. It is pronounced sep-ted and is known by various labels or names around the world such as Designing Out Crime and other acronyms.
