Defining CPTED

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design is . . .

The proper design and use of the built environment in order to lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime and improvement in the quality of life.

In other words, certain physical conditions provide opportunities for criminals and make crimes easier to commit. CPTED helps us change the environment to reduce these risks.

cpted principles
CPTED Principles
  • Access control
  • Surveillance
  • Territoriality
  • Activity support
access control
Access Control
  • Employs elements to deny admission to a crime target and to create a perception among offenders that there is a risk in selecting the target. Physical and mechanical means can supplement natural access control measures.

Access Control
  • Examples of tools for access control
    • Doors
    • Fencing
    • Landscaping
    • Gates
    • Traffic control measures
    • “Target hardening” techniques

Access Control

Door System






  • Uses design features to increase the visibility of a property or building. The proper placement and design of these features increases the ability of the public or law enforcement to observe, and thus provides an opportunity to discourage or stop inappropriate behavior, or report it to the authorities.
  • Examples of tools for surveillance
    • Lighting
    • Cameras
    • Windows facing streets/alleys
    • Porches
  • Employs design elements to help distinguish between public and private areas and helps users exhibit signs of “ownership” that send “hands off” messages to would-be offenders.
  • Examples of tools to support territoriality
    • Sidewalks
    • Landscaping
    • Lawn ornaments
    • Signage
    • Seasonal decorations
activity support
Activity Support
  • Examples of activity support
    • Maintenance
      • Trimming landscaping
      • Regular and thorough track pick-up
      • Graffiti removal
      • Replacement of defective lighting
    • Equipment to support intended uses
    • Signage that directs you where to go
    • Signage about who can use the area
