Don't Be A Target For Crime

Criminals select their victims.  By the time a burglar checks for your door and window locks, you’re already a target. 

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED, helps you to avoid becoming that target.  CPTED’s primary goal is discouraging criminal activity around your home and in your neighborhood.  And CPTED often beautifies your property at the same time.

Friends of the Old West End is offering a Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design seminar.  We want our homes and our neighborhood to be safer, feel safer, and look better.  We’d also like the same result for the entire City, which is why this seminar is free and open to everyone. 

This introductory CPTED seminar will help participants to anticipate the thought processes of potential offenders and create an environment that discourages follow through.  It will include natural access control methods, the benefits of natural surveillance, territorial reinforcement, and the importance of property maintenance.  
The seminar will expand on these principles using Danville / Old West End examples.

Registration is required.  Please click the REGISTER NOW button.

The seminar will be presented by Mike Jones of Major Security Consulting.  Major Jones is the former executive officer of the Virginia Capitol Police.  In addition to his consulting work, he chairs the Crime Prevention Training Advisory Committee for the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services and serves on the adjunct faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University.

There is no fee for this important safety and security program.  However, donations to or membership in the nonprofit Friends of the Old West End will be appreciated.  You can become a member through the SIGNUP link above.
