Armitage, Rachel (2017) Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Secured by Design (SBD): What Works. In: Strategic Command Course, College of Policing, 11th January 2017, Sunningdale, UK. (Unpublished)

Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a crime reduction measure that aims to design out crime at the planning, or pre-planning stage. It is based upon the five key elements of creating defensible space, limiting through movement, maximising natural surveillance, managing and maintaining an area and ensuring that standards of physical security are commensurate with risk. Secured by Design (SBD) is an award scheme, delivered by police forces, that incorporates the principles of CPTED. This presentation will explore what works (and what doesn’t) in delivering CPTED and SBD. It will also explore the effectiveness of CPTED and SBD in terms of their impact on police recorded crime, self-reported crime and offender decision-making.
