Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a proactive crime prevention philosophy based on the theory that proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in crime and the fear of crime, as well as an improvement in the quality of life for community, and that it aims to reduce or even remove the opportunity for crime to occur in an environment and promote positive interaction with the space by legitimate users.
