Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)
The Toledo Police Department’s Community Services Bureau offers CPTED inspections for apartment complexes, businesses, and residential properties located within the City of Toledo. CPTED is an evidence based process that evaluates the physical security features of properties and buildings. The CPTED inspection analyzes the infrastructure, landscaping, lighting, security measures and other aspects of a property so that recommendations can be provided to owners and managers to improve security and quality of life issues. When CPTED recommendations are adopted, the opportunity for criminal activity occurring is more likely to be reduced.
If you are interested in scheduling an inspection or finding out more about the CPTED process, please contact Toledo Community Services Bureau at (419) 245-1119.
