Join us with Police Constable Keira Brooks from the Barrie Police Service for March’s Learning Lab to explore Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED): Tips for Small Businesses.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal act.
CPTED is a design or re-design of the built environment to reduce crime opportunity.
Meet The Speaker:

Keira’s most rewarding position was within the Community Services Unit which afforded her the opportunity to truly embody the Barrie Police Service motto, “Committed to our Community”.
