The International CPTED Association
It is with immense sadness that we acknowledge the
passing of one of the great people in our CPTED world. On February 21, 2009,
Tim Crowe passed away.
Many of us were inspired and educated by Tim and he has touched countless
thousands of people through his teachings, thoughts and work. The CPTED field
will not be the same without his direct influence but I know we will continue
to carry his message into our projects and programmes.
Leave your thoughts and messages for the family and friends of Tim to read
you for this notice. I am truly saddened by Tim's death. Several
years ago I completed my CPTED Basic and Advanced training with Tim in
Louisville, and these sessions were both eye-opening and very professionally
done. Tim's rapport with the university, his ongoing commitment to the
city of Louisville and region, and his dedication to training members of the
Louisville Police Service and many others worldwide made for exceptional
training and educational opportunities. Tim's contributions to the
international community of law enforcement must also be noted, as he worked for
numerous Olympic committees, international standards associations, and dozens
of national and international police organizations.
law enforcement community nationally and internationally as well as every
municipality that has ever benefited from CPTED design will truly miss such a
gentleman and scholar.
Thank you so much for this information. It is with sadness
that I recieve this.
Though I haven't known Tim personally, it is always with
grief to know the passing away of a colleague.
May there be more of us to emulate his good teachings and
achievements in life.
Although I must admit that in 1994 when I attended my first CPTED class in Louisville taught by Tim I was a bit skeptical about the whole concept. Since that class I have been involved in many projects in the St.Paul, MN. I have had the opportunity to present at the 1999 conference in Mississauga, visit "Celebration" in Florida, explore the CPTED concepts in Sarasota, FL. and carry over the CPTED rules through out my various careers.
I am grateful for the insite that Tim afforded the opportunity for me to have through his teaching and his belief that I would never look at the world the same after I left his first class.
My sympathy goes out to his family, friends amd work associates.
behalf of all the members of DOCA UK I would like to express our deep
sorrow and sense of loss at the death of Tim.
held in the highest regard in the UK.
be greatly missed.
deepest sympathies are extended to his family.
rest in peace “
