21st Century Security and CPTED, 2nd Ed.


The concept of Crime Prevention Through

1970s, and Tim Crowe wrote the first CPTED applications book.

The second

includes the latest theory, knowledge, and practice of CPTED as it
relates to the current security threats facing the modern world: theft,
violent crime, terrorism, gang activity, and school and workplace

coverage of proper lighting, building design-both the interior and
exterior-physical security barriers, the usage of fencing, bollards,
