Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
The University Police receive specialized training in and actively promote the concept of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). CPTED strategies enhance facility security through design and use of space; and they are generally considered more appropriate to an academic setting since they tend to heighten awareness, expose criminal behavior and engender a higher level of personal comfort for the building occupants. CPTED concepts have been incorporated into the University's design manual and are a regular part of consideration during security surveys and discussions with architects.
