Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) on April 16-17, 2013. CPTED theories contend that law enforcement officers, architects, city planners, landscape and interior designers, and resident volunteers can create a climate of safety in a community right from the start. CPTED’s goal is to prevent crime by designing a physical environment that positively influences human behavior. The theory is based on four principles: natural access control, natural surveillance, territoriality, and maintenance. The National Crime Prevention Council’s course helps participants put the theories behind CPTED into action in their communities by designing a hands-on, interactive training specifically tailored to their community’s needs. Together North Jersey project team member, the Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey, in collaboration with the National Crime Prevention Council will host a statewide training on April 16-17th 2013 from 9-5pm, at the Passaic County Community College, 1 College Blvd., Paterson, NJ. The event will be held in the Paterson Room.
