Crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) is a multi-disciplinary approach to deterring criminal behavior through environmental design. CPTED strategies rely upon the ability to influence offender decisions that precede criminal acts by affecting the building, social and administrative environment. The UNCG Police Department is actively engaged with Facilities, Design and Construction to strategically address security concerns across the campus. The 2017-2020 Master Security Plan provides a unified, comprehensive strategy to enhance the safety and security of the campus; and operational directives designed to mitigate existing risks, educate the campus community and deter criminal behavior. The Plan’s risk management strategy will promote a safe and secure environment as the university infrastructure and facilities evolve over time.
The purpose of a security assessment is to identify the current security posture of university structures and buildings on campus. The assessment provides recommendations for improvement, which could possibly enhance security for the building, faculty/staff, and all other patrons. Upon completion of the assessment, the department will provide informative report of all recommendations. For those interested in conducting an assessment in a department or building, contact the Community Resources Unit at (336) 334-5069.
