topic of crime prevention through environmental design was discussed in class. And to tie that together with the syllabus I will talk about the criminal justice leader who designed that theory along with the broken windows theory.

In the realm of of Criminology and Criminal Justice, few theories try to explain why crime occurs
Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) alters the location or the physical design in an area to prevent or minimizes crimes in the area. The idea of crime prevention through environmental design was influenced out of Oscar Newman’s 1972 concept of defensible spaces. Defensible spaces goal is to prevent crime through a physical expression of social fabric and this defends itself. Residents like the appearance and design of the area and therefore they care more about it and what happens
CPTED and COP Revision CTPED or Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design is defined as “The prevention strategy which outlines how the physical environments can be designed in order to lessen the opportunity for crime.” (Queensland Police Department.) CPTED not only is defined by this definition, but it focuses on four more characteristics that help to make this design work effectively, and smoothly. These four characteristics are: maximizing the risk that offenders face, maximizing the effort
Crime Prevention through Environmental design’s efforts to alter the physical design of an area to impact the results of crime. Modern crime prevention roots in architectural design from the 1950s-1970s. Changes in the physical layout of an area increase the difficulty of an individual committing a crime as well as raising the chances of an offender being caught.

Crime choice theory, often referred to as environmental criminology or ecological criminology, is a branch of criminology that was supposedly started by the classical school’s Cesare Beccaria. As with many theories, it has evolved with time, but the basics of it have stayed much the same throughout time. Crime choice theory can relate through other theories such as; routine activity theory, environmental criminology, situational crime prevention and crime prevention through environmental design.
Situational Crime Prevention Theory and 2) Routine Activity Theory. The two theories focus on how opportunities to commit crime and the everyday activities of an individual are related to the physical environment. Both theories center on an assumed motivated and rational perpetrator and seek to understand what can be done to limit the opportunities for crime (Bohm & Vogel, 2010). Situational crime prevention theory has to components; 1) reducing the opportunities needed for the commission of crime, and
