When you look at things differently, the things you look at change. Learn how the power of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Community Engagement coupled with a partnership with Crime Stoppers has helped prevent crime, while also enhancing community safety overall.

This unique and interesting concept has been the focus of a Harvard University Business School case study.
