Using Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design in Problem-Solving
Diane Zahm (au)
Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is anapproach to problem-solving that asks, what is it about this location that places people at risk, or that results in opportunities for crime? In other words, why here? Opportunities for crime and other problems arise out of avariety of environmental conditions related to the building, the site, and the location and how the place is used. Solving a problem thus requires a detailed understanding of both crime and place, and the response should consider one of the three objectives of crime prevention through environmental design: control access, provide opportunities to see and be seen, or define ownership and encourage the maintenance of territory. This guide is a resource for understanding and using CPTED as a problemsolving tool. It explains the basic principles of CPTED and outlines a process for identifying problems, evaluating the physical environment, and identifying strategies that will remove or reduce opportunities for crime.
