Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (Advanced CPTED): Designing Critical Infrastructure Security And Protection

 Seminar Description:

With the reality of terrorism, workplace violence, and street crime, a cost-effective facility security design is the foundation of your organization's protection and loss control program. Integrating multiple security systems in a layered effect -including exterior perimeter protection from blasts, critical infrastructure protection, crime resistant building designs, intrusion detection systems, structural barriers, access controls, communications and CCTV - contribute to the protection of assets and control of losses.

This intensive, three-day seminar offers a detailed and systematic approach to developing the functional programmatic criteria of a fully integrated security program using advanced CPTED skills and integrated security design techniques to protect today’s vital infrastructure and built environment. The course also offers solid recommendations and CPTED strategies for improving protection against terrorism, workplace violence, street crime, and other forms of risk.

This course features a hands-on example and opportunity to conduct real-world site visits on existing properties to practice the skills being taught. The course involves several exercises at varying levels of complexity. Those without formal crime prevention training will acquire sufficient skills to fully participate in the exercises and discussion presentations.

The field exercise involves some walking, so participants should come prepared with comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing for the Louisville area. Participants are also encouraged to bring a digital camera and a laptop computer, if readily available.

This Course Will Focus On:

  • Using different approaches to assessing risks, threats, and vulnerabilities
  • Developing practical solutions to a functionally integrated security  design system
  • Defining security requirements and select appropriate countermeasures and security technologies to prevent and reduce risks and protect the client assets
  • Preparing and defending a security business case before management that outlines security design, shows the advantages, and addresses the return on investment
  • Identifying effective project management techniques used for bidding, construction oversight and implementation of security systems
  • Identify the evolving needs and requirements to have buildings meet LEED and GREEN sustainability standards, yet comply and coexist with security requirements. 
  • Provide the timely and critical update about new security lighting technologies: LED and Induction lighting, and what that means for energy consumption and lighting quality and quantity issues. 
  • Explore the role in security and CPTED for return on investment, value engineering, and cost benefit analysis to make security indispensible in the design process. 
  • Provide an update on the increasing role of premises security negligence cases and the role that CPTED plays in reducing liability.

Who Should Attend:

  • Security architects
  • Security personnel
  • Law enforcement officers
  • Designers
  • Integrators
  • Project managers
  • Practitioners responsible for an organization’s physical security controls or directly involved in the design, implementation, operation, or maintenance of security systems
  • Communities and local governments and private sector organizations interested in developing a comprehensive security program should consider sending a multi-disciplinary team to this course.


Community Security By Design:  Basic CPTED course is recommended. This workshop assumes that you are already knowledgeable about and familiar with CPTED, security equipment and physical security. The purpose of this course is not to teach the basics, but to successfully apply and integrate them.
