    All you need to know about CPTED & how it relates to Security, Threat Assessments, State Funding & more!

    Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) seems to be blazing new paths into 21st Century education design.  But what is a CPTED Assessment? How is it different from a Threat Assessment and does it work with active shooter training? Can CPTED design principles be cost effectively applied to school renovation projects? Will the State fund CPTED security improvements? Should you become a Certified CPTED professional? These questions will be answered during the workshop.                          

    Attendees will be thoroughly educated about the process, approach and benefits of utilizing cost-effective CPTED design methods to improve security on the interior, exterior and throughout school grounds, as well as techniques to incorporate CPTED principles into design review protocols.                              

    There will be a break-out charrette where participants will divide into multiple groups to collaborate with CPTED professionals and their peers to evaluate site and floor plans and make recommendations for security improvements utilizing CPTED.

    Who should attend: Safety and Security professionals, facility planners, design, construction and maintenance professionals, anyone  responsible for providing security improvements, and anyone interested in becoming CPTED Certified.                  

    Participants will Learn:

    1. what CPTED principles are, and how to use them to analyze facilities to improve security.
    2. techniques on how to identify cost-effective CPTED principles and incorporate them into new and existing facilities.
