Follow-up: Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)

We had a good turnout for our most recent West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network meeting – many thanks to Officer Jon Kiehn for his informative CPTED presentation and to those of you who attended and participated!

A key takeaway from the meeting: there are several aspects to CPTED that work together to deter criminals. These include Natural Surveillance, Natural Territorial Reinforcement, Natural Access Control, and Maintenance.

As we mentioned, Officer Kiehn gave a similar presentation (slides are here) to our group in May 2011 that explains these concepts in more detail. He also conducted a CPTED property tour for our group; it was videotaped by the West Seattle Blog and is available to watch on YouTube (here’s a link).

You can also find both of these, along with any past/future presentations and materials, in the CPTED category on the menu in the right sidebar.
