Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)


Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is recognized worldwide for its proven strategies to deter crime and increase safety.

CPTED is now required on all new developments in the city, and recommended for all improvements.

Power Inn Alliance promotes CPTED as part of our Safety and Security program.

CPTED is based on a simple idea that the physical environment affects crime and that the design or re-design of an environment reduces crime opportunities and the fear of crime.

Design elements incorporated by CPTED strategies include ares such as proper lighting, landscaping, signage, and strategic pedestrian access. Every property has different CPTED needs depending on the design, layout and issues happening on the premises. A CPTED review can provide improvement recommendations.

As a benefit to the Power Inn district, Alliance staff member, Dawn Carlson will offer a CPTED site audit to provide you with recommendations to increase the safety and use of your property.
