CPTED Training

We will no longer be offering our regularly scheduled CPTED courses.  Training will be available on a contract basis for agencies requiring training for their staff.  Please Contact Us for more information if your organization requires CPTED training.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED (pronounced sep-ted), is a proven set of design and security principles that are internationally recognized and used by planners, designers, police agencies, security professionals, academics, educators, retailers and others to reduce the fear and incidence of crime, as well as improve quality of life.

STSD Inc. offers CPTED Training Courses to security professionals, architects, interior designers, property managers and anyone who may be interested in assessing, recommending and deploying building-design elements that will enhance the safety and security of their facilities.
