Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)

Risk Terrain Modeling (RTM) analysis brings the crime and land-use components of CPTED together with an empirical twist. Physical landscapes consciously and unconsciously influence human behaviors. Altering the physical design of landscapes is a main goal of CPTED. RTM identifies what, specifically, about environments should be altered to prevent crime or strengthen security. And, because no problem presents itself the same way across different states or municipalities, RTM analysis tailors the intel to specific types of crimes within their geographic settings. It’s hyper-local.

CPTED without RTM is like playing darts blindfolded. Know where to aim! RTM helps you prioritize places and focus on the most important factors.

Use RTM to make the best business decisions and better respond to pressing issues at the organizational and individual site levels. Implement successful interventions, develop the right security package for every location, and get the greatest return on investment wherever you operate.
