This course is fundamental for all designers of security and public safety solutions. Prison and fire officers are also key to the protection of communities and citizens and thus training in CPTED strategies is critical.

In the end, devising and implementing CPTED strategies results in huge cost savings to organizations, communities and people.

Some of the main issues to be covered include: territoriality, surveillance, access controls, target hardening, image/maintenance, and activity support.
