Overview

The iDOC 2019 International Design Out Crime and CPTED Conference focuses on New Directions in CPTED and Night Time Economy CPTED.

There are many new changes to CPTED and Design Out Crime. These are driven by a large number of factors changingi n the world at large:

  • increased use of evidence on what works and what doesn't, where, when and why;
  • the extention of CPTED into new areas such as anti-terrorism, crowded places and event management;
  • New technologies transforming CPTED (e.g. face recognition, virtual following, 360deg 24/7 surveillance, biometric access control, drones...)
  • New thinking about CPTED in relation to health, gender, equity, control, economic development, legal liabilities...
  • Professionalisation of CPTED practices
  • New forms of CPTED training and certification
  • CPTED standards
