The appropriate use of CPTED principles and methodology can make facilities safer and less prone to criminal activity. These principals impact construction, landscaping, walls and fencing among other aspects of facility design. Favouring visually pleasing high-quality solutions that enhance the legitimate use of space, CPTED methods avoid the employment of visually affronting security or target hardening measures.
A multi-disciplinary approach to the deterrence of criminal behaviour through environmental design, CPTED applies the physical design of physical assets to deter or reduce the likelihood of criminal activity. Some of these strategies may include natural surveillance strategies, landscape designs that provide surveillance opportunities and effective use of manmade environments.
