In an increasingly complex world, creating safe environments requires planning with intention, nuance, and a multi-disciplinary approach. Physical security is most seamless when integrated into built environments long before they are constructed, but elements can also be effectively integrated into existing spaces. Learn about risk assessment, varied strategies, multi-disciplinary designs, and effective questions to ask to ensure that places and spaces are beautiful and functional--but also inherently secure. Case studies will be discussed to assist in framing a typical and holistic planning process. Effective approaches will be shared from the perspective of a professional planner and urban designer, as well as a physical security specialist.
