APA-NC Section 3 and the Piedmont Triad Counci of Governments are excited to bring this three-day training opportunity to North Carolina.

Cities and Counties throughout the country are adopting Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) ordinances requiring site plan reviews with crime prevention in mind. Law enforcement officers who are specially trained in CPTED are now working closely with Planners, Architects, City Officials, and Educators to ensure the proper design of structures, schools, and neighborhoods. 

During this workshop, participants will learn how the design and use of the environment can control human / criminal behavior and reduce the fear of crime; how natural access control and natural surveillance decrease the opportunity for crime; and how different aspects of lighting impact human behavior and other design strategies. Participants will work together on a site survey and provide a group presentation of their results using CPTED strategies. They will learn the advantages of having a CPTED ordinance and how to construct and present one to lawmakers.

Preregistration is required.
