Public Safety Alliance Focuses on Environmental Design


Safer Sites: Princina Brown-Thomas recently presented to District property managers about crime prevention through environmental design.

Don McKinney, Westchase District's vice president of public safety, recently hosted a Public Safety Alliance luncheon for apartment, hotel and office property managers to learn about how they can reduce criminal activity through effective use of their existing environments. 

While many discussions about crime focus on arrest and punishment rather than prevention, the Houston Police Department's CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) program seeks to reduce opportunities for crime by applying design principles that make it more difficult to carry out inappropriate activities.
