A public lecture about Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) was recently hosted by the Community Crime Prevention Program and RMIT in Melbourne.

Presented by Dr Leanne Monchuk from the University of Huddersfield (UK) and Dr Garner Clancey from the University of Sydney, the lecture brought together a range of academics, students and professionals working in council, policing and the built environment.

Drawing on examples from both the Australia and the UK, Dr Monchuk and Dr Clancey shared their insights into the design principles making a difference in crime prevention.
