ICA Chapters

The idea of ICA Chapters is not new. In early days of the ICA following its establishment in 1996 several ICA chapters were formed including the Asia-Pacific Chapter in Australia, CPTED Region Chapter in Latin America, DOCA in the United Kingdom and E-DOCA in Continental Europe. In order to recognize the work of various organizations on a local level and formalize the relationships with them the ICA launched an ICA Umbrella Initiative in April 2020. Since then we continue building relationships with CPTED groups on the ground all around the globe.

Click on the logo of the ICA chapters below for more information about that chapter. New chapters will be added as their relationship with the ICA becomes formalized.
