Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) Training in Oak Forest, Illinois

(ICA CAP Accredited - Class A) 

April 4 - 8, 2022

TEEX is now offering the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) course accredited by the International CPTED Association. CPTED is used to alter and expand the participant’s perception of the immediate physical environment. By altering the perception of the physical environment, the participant will be more capable of understanding the direct relationship of the environment to human behavior and to crime. An understanding of the design, management, and effective use of the environment is a prerequisite to increasing the success of citizen’s efforts in crime prevention. While CPTED is not the total answer to community problems, it does provide the community with the means to eliminate or reduce environmental obstacles to social, cultural, or managerial control.

Target audience: Law Enforcement, Crime Prevention Personnel, Private Security, Architects, and City Planning Staffs.
