Description:

Offering one important answer to current concerns with violence and terrorism, this is the first book dedicated to the emerging field of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED). It includes contributions from the world's top CPTED practitioners. Highly relevant to critical infrastructure protection, the book addresses application of CPTED to high security environments, as well as public and private sector buildings. Facilitating understanding across fields, it explains the architecture process to security directors, while explaining the security design process to architects. It also serves as a practical guide for security directors, police officers, homeland security managers, and building managers, as well as criminal justice, architecture, and security students.
