Launched in 2015, the Tulsa Crime Stopper’s CPTED program assesses the design and use of the built environment and makes recommendations that lead to a reduction of crime incidences. It improves the quality of life in and around a community. If a site is laid out well the likelihood of it being targeted for crime can be reduced. We currently employ Northeast Oklahoma’s only CPTED Certified Professional. Our professional works with for-profit businesses, neighborhoods, and non-profit organizations assessing their environments.
A location is surveyed utilizing target hardening, time tested criteria including but not limited to; natural surveillance, access control, territoriality, and maintenance. Upon the completion of the assessment, customers receive a detailed hard and digital copy report that details their environments strengths and weaknesses in regards to crime prevention. CPTED is an internationally accepted crime prevention method used by governments, and private entities, around the world.
To obtain a request for a consultation of assessment for your neighborhood or business contact us at 918-585-5209 for more information.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) theories contend that law enforcement officers, architects, city planners, landscape and interior designers, and resident volunteers can create a climate of safety in a community right from the start. CPTED’s goal is to prevent crime by designing a physical environment that positively influences human behavior. The theory is based on four principles: natural access control, natural surveillance, territoriality, and maintenance. NCPC’s course helps participants put the theories behind CPTED into action in their communities by designing a hands-on, interactive, two- or three-day basic or advanced training specifically tailored to their community’s needs.
