Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) – The goal of this program is to prevent crime by ensuring your home or business is a safe environment. CPTED is a free service provided by the Prescott Valley Police Department. This educational program is offered by our Crime Prevention Officers (CPOs) who will visually survey your property and make recommendations. The CPOs may suggest trimming bushes and trees to improve visibility or review the placement of lighting and security cameras. In addition, CPOs have a wide variety of knowledge about crime prevention and can provide information and suggestions to enhance your awareness. For information about CPTED or to arrange for an evaluation of your property, call (928) 772-9261.
