SafeGrowth: Creating Safety & Sustainability through Community Building and Urban Design

CSI In-Depth Paper Series

The partnership between SafeGrowth and LISC's Community Safety Initiative has allowed for the design of a comprehensive program model for professionals in community development, urban planning and design, law enforcement and crime prevention. It draws on the best-practices of six years of MetLife Foundation Award winners to inform future planning for comprehensive community safety programs.This paper describes first and second generation CPTED principles and outlines how the principles should be considered as part of a 6-phase planning and problem-solving process to improve public safety.
