Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design – Starts April 7th for 6 weeks.

Are you interested in helping to reduce crime in your neighbourhood?

We are hosting a FREE program to the community using principles of CPTED to improve community safety. This program will be led by an Edmonton Police Service officer who is trained in the principles of CPTED.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design or “CPTED” is the science around the design and effective use of physical space to lead a reduction in both the incidence and fear of crime. CPTED seeks to reduce both opportunity and the number of targets for criminals.

  • Where: Athlone Community League 13010 – 129 Street.
  • When: Every Tuesday starting April 7th for 6 weeks.
  • Time: From 6:00PM – 9:00PM

You will leave this program with a better understanding of how you can help to keep your community safe.

The classroom-based learning will focus on reducing crime opportunities by modifying the environment. Participants will be introduced to how the physical environment can have a direct relationship to human behaviour. There will also be a walk through the communities to look at problem areas and what changes we could look at making. Information will be provided by an Edmonton Police officer who is trained in CPTED.

Please register by contacting: Donna Harasem, donna.harasem@edmonton.ca or call 780-944-5432, by March 30th.

We can only take 6 residents for each of the 6 surrounding neighbourhoods, so please register quickly to ensure you have a space.
