Join us on Tuesday, February 27th to learn (more) about CPTED!

WSBWCN-logoCrime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is defined as a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts by affecting the built, social and administrative environment.  The strategies can apply to personal residences as well as parks, businesses, etc.

Our guest speaker will be SW Precinct Crime Prevention Coordinator, Jennifer Danner. She has recently received her Professional CPTED Designation and will include the latest and greatest information on this subject in her presentation. Come learn some easy, innovative, and low-cost ideas that can be easily applied to your home environment to deter criminal behavior!

As always, we’ll also have an update from SW Precinct Commander, Captain Pierre Davis.

Here’s the detailed agenda.

WSBWCN-giant-logocurrentJoin us this coming Tuesday, the 23rd, for our April meeting!

Officer Jon Kiehn from the Community Police Team will give his very popular presentation on Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED,  pronounced “Sep-Ted”).

Learn how to reduce the chances that your home will be the target for burglaries. It’s an interesting and enlightening presentation (think “target hardening” and “hostile vegetation”).

Even if you saw Officer Kiehn’s presentation last year, you’ll come away with new ideas and insights about changes that you can make for little to no money to make your home and neighborhood a safer place to be. Feel free to send/bring photos if you have specific issues to ask him about!

This presentation was originally scheduled for last month’s meeting; however, SW Precinct Commander, Capt. Kessler was able to stay longer than we had anticipated. If you missed that meeting, here’s the recap.

Learn about CPTED at our Tuesday, April 24th meeting!!

Do you think of crime prevention in terms of deadbolts on doors and locks on windows? There are more far-reaching options, such as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). 

What is CPTED?  Pronounced “sep-ted”, it refers to a group of strategies intended to reduce the fear of crime and the opportunities to commit crimes such as breaking and entering, assault and vehicle theft. The principles of CPTED are used by police, landscape designers, architects, city planners and many others to make parks, properties and neighborhoods more crime-resistant.

Come learn about the principles of CPTED and how to apply them to your building, property or neighborhood. Community Police Team (CPT) Officer Jonathan Kiehn, who conducts CPTED training, will offer specific strategies to make your neighborhood less crime-friendly; he’ll share some success stories that have resulted from the implementation of CPTED principles.

This is an updated presentation from a year ago; if you missed it, don’t miss it again.  If you saw it, come for a refresher and some new information.

Officer Jonathan Kiehn is a Community Police Team (CPT) officer at the SW Police Precinct. If you have questions about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) or his presentation to our group, you can reach him via this webpage

Here’s a link to coverage of his presentation, including video of the CPTED Field Trip.

If you missed the CPTED Field Trip, take a virtual tour!

The West Seattle Blockwatch Captains’ Network meeting yesterday was packed with great information about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED); even for those who attended the previous CPTED presentation we had at our March monthly meeting. Officer Jon Kiehn gave an overview of the basic CPTED principles, then took us on a field trip where he conducted a CPTED evaluation of a real house. 

Fortunately, the West Seattle Blog covered the meeting & videotaped the field trip portion! We plan to post Officer Kiehn’s slide presentation shortly, so check back for that (now posted here).

Thanks to all of you who attended & participated! We extend special thanks to Officer Kiehn & also to the homeowners who allowed us to tour their property.

Updated, 5/25/11, 7:15 PM: Here’s coverage of our meeting from the West Seattle Herald.
