CPTED Training Workshop

February 4, 2019

Free Training Workshop Hosted by SynTerra | 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Defend your Territory! Can a rosebush stop a robbery?  Will a mural prevent a mugging? 

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) approaches crime prevention by first asking, “Why here?  What about this location creates risk to people or results in opportunities for crime?”  The answers are often found in the design and placement of architectural and environmental features.       

Learn how to discourage crime using the strategies of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design in an interactive and interesting training opportunity offered by PalmettoPride.  This CPTED course includes:

  • Clear explanations and examples of the four CPTED strategies of Territorial Reinforcement, Natural Access Control, Natural Surveillanceand
  • Techniques for implementing the strategies (i.e. Landscaping, Pavement Treatments, Architecture, Activity Support, Public Art, Lighting)
  • Hands-on experience in applying the concepts via field study in the local area.
  • Guidance in conducting a CPTED survey and completing a CPTED report.
  • Resources and continued support as you implement CPTED strategies on your personal or business property and throughout the community.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design promises that you will never look at your environment the same way again.  Simple techniques in areas such as landscaping, lighting, wayfinding, and even artwork will discourage undesirable behavior and encourage appropriate activity.  Obtain the knowledge and skills to implement these strategies in this workshop provided free to the community by PalmettoPride. Laptop & Smartphone suggested.
