CPTED security devices on windows and doors.

CPTED refers to mostly based on the
idea that the proper design also effective use of the built environment can
lead to a reduction in the incidence and fear of crime and an improvement in
the quality of life. In other words also if a site is laid out well also the
likelihood of it being targeted for a crime may be reduced. Crime Prevention is
defined as the anticipation also recognition and appraisal of a crime risk and
the initiation of some action to remove or reduce it. It is the CRIMEPREVENTION
THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN Committees desire to disseminate this information
to design professionals and the development community so that these principles
can be incorporated whenever possible in the design phase. Disclaimer: The CRIMEPREVENTION
THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN document is a guideline providing techniques and
strategies. Also In some of the areas this guide might be conflict with the
Uniform Statewide Building Code also in some of theoccupancy types also in that
instance to the USBC will be the pre velling to thedocument. Some of the CRIMEPREVENTION
THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN techniques and strategies relate to hardening of
security devices on windows and doors. On the other hand a Careful attention
should be given. When a modification to a required means of egress is preferred
in an existing structure a permit is required from the Division of Permits and
Inspections. Also The proper design and the effective use of the environment
can lead to the reduction in the incidence of crime also to be and improve the
quality .CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN also as defined by the
National Crime Prevention Institute 5 Understanding CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH
ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN design strategies
have evolved over time. Each of the following CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH
ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN strategies offer guidelines which also as a property owner
also builder also or remodeler also you can apply to reduce the fear and
incidence of crime and improve the quality of life. These design guidelines are
intended to stimulate design professionals to address urban security problems. Purpose
Of Design Guidelines: C To make members of the Development Community and City
Staff aware of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design and implement
creative solutions whenever possible. C To inform developers also design
professionals and the public of the possible reduction of criminal opportunity
when CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN principles are used during
the initial planning stages of a development. C To describe design alternatives
which could have an adverse affect on opportunities for criminal activity. These
include the individual planning activities and their sequence also the timing
of various decisions also who makes the decisions also and how to incorporate
these CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN principles into the process.
The ability to incorporate these principles depends also on the information
available to communicate roles also and authorities that influence the design
and construction of new development. This guide is intended to share
information on terminology and the process with partners from other agencies
also identify steps in the development process where CRIMEPREVENTION THROUGH
ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN concepts can be introduced also and help clarify how
agencies and outside groups can work together during the review of projects.

Natural Surveillance a concept
directed related at keeping in the or keeping under the observation. It also utilizes
building visibility and properties. The proper placement and design of windows
also lighting also and landscaping increases the ability of those who care to
observe intruders as well as regular users also and thus provides the
opportunity to challenge inappropriate behavior or report it to the police or
the property owner. When natural surveillance is used to its greatest advantage
also it maximizes the potential to deter crime by making the offenders behavior
more easily noticeable to a passing individual also police patrol also or
private security detail. Also to Provide good visual connection from commercial
to the residential units. Place activity rooms such as kitchens also
living/family rooms and lobbies to allow for good viewing of parking also
streets and/or common areas. Managers also doormen also attendants also and
security personnel should have extensive views of these areas. Natural Access
Control Natural access control employs elements like doors also shrubs also
fences also and gates to deny admission to a crime target and to create a
perception among offenders that there is a risk in selecting the target. The
primary thrust of an access control strategy is to deny access to a crime
target and to create a perception of risk to offenders. Physical and mechanical
means of access control-locks also bars also and alarms can supplement natural
access control measures if needed. A fence around a neighborhood playground is
an example of an access control measure that protects children from wandering
off and inhibits entry of potential offender. Avoid remote locations for common
areas. Territorial employs such design also landscaping also and porches
elements as sidewalks also landscaping also and porches to help distinguish
between users. Low walls to the  landscape and also to the paving patterns to
visible clear. Therefore also the environment should be designed to clearly
delineate private spaces. Provide obvious defined entries also patios also
balconies and terraces. Use low walls also landscape and paving patterns to
delineate ownership and responsibility. Maintenance Lastly also care and
maintenance allows for the continued to use of a space for its intended
purpose. Proper maintenance protects the public health also safety and welfare
in all existing structures also residential and nonresidential also and on all
existing premises by establishing minimum requirements and acceptable
standards. Maintenance is the responsibility of the owners also operators and
occupants.
