About the Workshop
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is an approach to crime prevention that uses architectural design and the intentional management of our environments to reduce crime and victimization. CPTED strategies aim to build a sense of community so residents and property managers can gain territorial control and send the clear message to criminals that they should go somewhere else!
The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) will facilitate this three-day workshop that will cover core CPTED strategies. Using the unique NCPC Community Blueprint and second generation CPTED concepts, workshop residents will discuss and prioritize their communities’ specific challenges and work together to develop a basic CPTED-based action plan for their area.
Houston communities are invited to register a team of up to eight individuals. Teams consisting of a mix of people is suggested, such as residents, apartment managers, business owners or managers, and faith leaders. The right mix for specific neighborhoods is up to the participants. Residents can also register to participate in the training solo to share what they learn with their communities.
