CRJU 3200: Crime Prevention and Security, Spring Semester 2016 Week 3 Crime Prevention Techniques  Physical Environmental Design: changing the built thing around us o Jacobs (1950-1960s): concluded that modern cities were failing us  Social problems: crime  Address them by changing the way our community is structured o Oscar Newman: got modern crime prevention started  He was an architect Defensible space- a model which inhibits crime by creating a physical expression of a social fabric that defends itself  Make physical design changes  Changes that tell people that the people who live here care enough to do something about crime Territoriality- wants physical design to say that people own and control this  Animals do this as well  Defend territory  Sense of community- people in the area want to take care of the area and the outside people can see that  Idea that physical design can make a difference: a man sees 2 complexes and one has more crime than the other, so he wonders what was different about the two same exact complexes o Higher buildings with more floors are bad while low buildings with few floors are good since you can see what is going on outside and around you 4 elements of defensible space: 1. Territoriality- attitude that people have that there are boundaries that belong to you and have others see that it is your territory a. Builds cohesiveness 2. Natural surveillance- ability to keep an eye on things through no special efforts a. Ex: be able to look out the window and see what’s going on 3. Image- built so it doesn’t look vulnerable 4. Milieu (safe areas)- area around you a. Ex: fences, windows Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)  Jeffery- social environment  Proximate goals: increase motivation reinforcement, increase access control, increase surveillance, increase activity support (meeting a new neighbor) Formal surveillance: hiring a guard Informal task: clear sightlines, maintenance of design, open streets Crime occurs because of opportunity that underlies CPTED 1. Target 2. Risk 3. Effort 4. Payoff
