The Virginia Commonwealth University Police Department in partnership with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services is offering this introductory level course in Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design.
All armed law enforcement officers not in uniform must display their badge while in training.
This one-day training is intended to introduce attendees to the concept and principles known as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). This is a rudimentary course designed to provide a basic understanding of the research leading to the principles of CPTED as well as its relationship to other crime prevention philosophies and practices. The course will provide the student with an understanding of the importance that the environment plays in generating or preventing crime. Students will be introduced to the proactive application of the principles of CPTED toward discouraging criminal activity.
This class is designed for those with little to no knowledge of CPTED. This is NOT a course in conducting security assessments.
Specific Topics Include:
Law enforcement officers will receive partial in-service credit (PIC) hours for this training and will receive 8 Crime Prevention Specialist credit hours.
$25:00 Fee (See registration page for payment methods)
On street parking will be available for the day with a permit. All registered attendees will be e-mailed a parking permit at least one week before the class to be displayed.
Participants are responsible for transportation, lodging, and meal costs.
