(Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) is a proactive crime prevention strategy utilized by planners, architects, police services, security professionals and everyday users of space. The concept utilizes the proper design and effective use of the built environment and can lead to a reduction in the incidence and fear of crime and improvement in the quality of life.
CPTED is based on three concepts:
- Natural Surveillance: Strategy directed at keeping intruders under observation such as public areas.
- Natural Access: Deny access to a crime target and create a perception of risk in offenders.
- Territorial Reinforcement: Sense of ownership in a designated area where physical design can create a sphere of influence.
