Once overlooked as a minor and ineffective tactic in the mitigation and prevention of terrorism and violent crime, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) has undergone dramatic changes since the September 11 attacks. The most up-to-date reevaluation of CPTED since 2000, Designing Safe Communities with CPTED is a class that reflects updates and amendments to the rules for security in the built environment and presents the knowledge and practice of CPTED as applied to today's world of threats, including street crime, workplace violence, and terrorism.
Taught by America's premier architect, criminologist, and Certified Protection Professional, and boasting contributions from the world's top CPTED practitioners, this course represents the first collection of CPTED information to be readily accessible to the architectural and law enforcement communities. Facilitating understanding across fields, it explains the architecture process to security directors and the security design process to architects.
Providing step-by-step guidelines for applying real-world concepts, principles, and processes for building security and CPTED, the course starts with the risk threat assessment and considers relevant factors and variables all the way through construction and post-occupancy evaluation. Highly relevant to critical infrastructure protection, the course demonstrates CPTED implementation in high-security environments, as well as public and private sector buildings, parks, ATMs, and schools. It addresses specialization in security system design and planning, crime prevention, blast mitigation, and chemical, biological, and nuclear threat protection.
The course is a practical resource and guide for architects, security directors, law enforcement, Homeland Security professionals, and building and property managers; Designing Safe Communities with CPTED addresses how CPTED is applicable to critical infrastructure protection in the continuing effort for homeland security. The course provides recipients with their CPTED Practitioner Certification that is accepted in Broward County, the State of Florida, and recognized nationally and internationally.
