New Directions in CPTED and Night-Time Economy CPTED

Perth, Western Australia 13-15 February 2019

What's on? Conference Themes

Evidence-based CPTED

CPTED is changing and extending its scope due to increased availability of evidence, crime data, new technology and new ways of thinking.

Conference Themes

Night-Time Economy CPTED

CPTED for Night-Time Economies is very different from CPTED in other situations.

Conference Themes

Lessons Learned

Best practices in CPTED change. Practical CPTED experiences, evaluation and Lessons Learned move CPTED forward. Question: In what circumstances does rapid graffiti cleaning result in more graffiti?

Conference Themes

CPTED for Events

CPTED is effective for events. It requires a temporary CPTED interventions that often have major changes DURING different stages of an event.

Conference Themes

CPTED and Quality of Life

Increasingly, CPTED interventions are required to enhance life. This requires identifying and avoiding potential adverse effects of CPTED in terms of, e.g. health, gender, social equity issues, economic development, use of funding and resources, privacy, social control, functionality and aesthetics.

Conference Themes

New Technologies

CPTED is being transformed by new technologies such as widespread CCTV, face recognition, AI virtual following across CCTV; social conformance scoring with automated access control, numberplate access control, universal 360degree 24/7 CCTV, surveillance in the home, automated behaviour analysis, etc.

Conference Themes

Crowded Places and Counter Terrorism

CPTED is increasingly part of and overlapping with Crowded Places and Counter Terrorism strategies. Both use environmental design strategies to reduce crime.

Conference Themes

Legal and Financial Liabilities and Professional practices

CPTED can have adverse consequences. These can lead to legal and financial liabilities. Protection comes from standardised CPTED processes, professional practices, OHS , and identifying potential adverse consequences.

Conference Themes

Cookie-Cutter vs Risk/Threat analysis

The days of Cookie-cutter CPTED may be numbered? Is CPTED better decided by analysis of risksor threats or architecture
