Reminder: Sept 2017 FFPD Community Education Forum: How to make your home/business safe using effective designs

***Reminder***

Join the Fairfield Police Department for our September Community Education Forum: 

Topic: "Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design." (CPTED)
Date/Time: Wednesday, September 20, 2017, from 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. 
Location: Fairfield City Council Chamber. 
(We moved the event to this date due to a schedule conflict.)

Our Neighborhood Watch groups have been hearing about "crime prevention through environmental design" for the last few years.This month we are going to teach CPTED concepts in detail and help people learn to implement it in their own homes and businesses! 

In simple terms, how a business or a home is designed and landscaped can make a significant difference in deterring criminal activity. For example:
  • Simply trimming hedges in such a way that it is difficult to hide behind them makes it difficult for a criminal to hide or lay in wait for a victim.
  • Trimming shrubs below window height so occupants can see outside causes criminals to be more cautious and think they are being watched.
  • Using 3" long screws instead of the 3/4" standard screws on entry-door strike plates makes it much more difficult to force entry to your home
There are dozens of strategies you can learn to make your home or business safer. 

Join us at our September Community Education Forum to learn more!
