CPTED

"CPTED" Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.

CPTED is based on the premise that the proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the incidence and fear of crime, and an improvement in the quality of life. The Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre is committed to offering crime prevention training opportunities that help create a strong network of trained crime prevention professionals in Central Alberta.
