Crime prevention in your neighbourhood includes the design of homes, streets, walking paths, parks and public spaces to maximize safety. This planning known as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) has been adopted by the City of Brampton and Brampton Safe City. This includes landscaping, lighting, positive use and view of public spaces, reduce entry and exits into your block. Evaluate your own neighbourhood and encourage your neighbours in a Neighbourhood Watch program.
