Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED is the proper design and effective use of a built environment, which can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime. There are reasons why crime occurs at a particular location over and over again. The environment likely contributes to the crime rate. CPTED addresses this by taking away the opportunity for crime, resulting in a reduction in the incidence of crime.

It is smart planning to anticipate potential crime issues and design new developments in such a way where the opportunity for crime is reduced, resulting in more livable and thriving cities.
